I made a stew yesterday and accidentally added too much cruched chilli (opened the wrong side of the jar and poured too much in). It was pretty firy. My question is, in the future when I make this same mistake again, what can I do to counter/ neutralise the chilli? Is there any way of bringing it back? I was told add suger but does this work?

hi Nero11! I usually grab some sugars and put it on my tongue. then I will rinse my tongue with a glass of cold water. I always do that, I love chili and I always experienced that "too much" chili incident. haha! Happy lotting!

drown it in sour cream when you eat it! That's always a good way to make it a lil less spicy.

Yes, sugar and a bit of vinegar. Normally a teaspoon of each. That will do the trick.

Hatley is right. Add some vegetables that blend with the stew that you have cooked but boil them separately as if you put them in the stew that is ready will make the whole thing unpalatable. Boil the stuff and then put it in and bring the whole stuff only to a boil and keep it aside till it marinates and dont forget to eat it
