ON FIRE!!!

Ladies, I bought 3 pounds of hamburger last weekend and made a crockpot full of chili.  BIG PROBLEM - I over did the spices!!! HOLY MOLY THIS CHILI IS SCREAMING! 

What can I do to tone this down?  Should I add some more hamburger and a couple cans of tomato sauce and no more spices?  I don't know WHAT I did but this stuff is nearly inedible!

Break it up into mini batches to mix half and half with a fresh batch with no spice in it?

 I googled it and it said that the capsaisin dissolves in oil so skimming the oil off the top will help.  Another said they added 2 T. peanut butter and 1 T. brown sugar and a little chocolate.  

  Good luck!

well huh.  This is something I didn't think about Googling!  lol.  thanks!  I don't have peanut butter though.  I just ate a bowl of chili and took a zantac.  maybe that will work for now.

 I did that with my Cincinnati Chili once.  I accidently put cayenne in instead of chili powder.  It was very tasty, but too hot to eat!!!  I did exactly what MamaSnaps suggested - I made another batch the next day, mixed the two, and froze some of it.

Whenever your mouth is on fire from something to hot, you are to drink Milk or eat a creamsicle as silly as that sounds.

Milk or an orange creamsicle are the only items that will tone down the heat and capsasin from the heat.  Don't drink water because it does nothing.

Also, split the batches into smaller quantities...  Add more chopped meat, no spices, and more beans if you'd like...  You can add some more tomato sauce if you'd like also...  this will help get rid of some of the heat as well.

My husband adores hot food, and I can't stomach it...  We watch a lot of programs on hot foods so I learn a lot on how to make it, and how to cool down...

Potatoes and cabbage will absorb the heat as well and then you could remove them if you wanted. Chocolate helps with the heat as well, you could use baking cocoa powder or melt chocolate in it. Also you could add a tsp of baking soda, it is a neutralizer.

Put sour cream on it when you serve it. Serve with corn bread instead of crackers, cheese

I didn't do anything yet.  lol.  I put the rest of it up in the freezer, in 6 "batches."  The next time I buy hamburger, I'll make another batch, without the spices, though, and then mix it with the spicy batch.
