How to prepare chillies

Learn how to handle chilli with confidence with our 'how to' video from the BBC Good Food cookery team showing how to shred, slice and dice.

Points to remember

  • Make rings by slicing across the whole chilli with a sharp knife.
  • To cut into fine shreds, slice the green top off the chilli, then remove the seeds with a knife or teaspoon. Keep the chilli skin-side down and slice lengthways into thin shreds.
  • To cut into fine dice, cut the shreds across into even cubes.
