1. OH! SORRY!

I guess if it's GROUND, you're stuck; if its FLAKES, maybe there's hope to capture and kill some!

2. Serve it with a dollop of sour cream...

...added to each bowl. It will help cut the heat and should go well with chili. Include bread and salad -- bread will also help to add bulk without heat, and salad to refresh the palate from the heavy chili/sour cream/bread.

3. Freeze half

add to remainder to cut heat. Maybe not your best but I'll bet still good and you'll have chili starter for next time...

7. I would go with this suggestion. Not everyone likes tonsil-scorching heat or sour cream.

On the other hand, I LOVE turnips and rutabagas. Different strokes for different folks.


Please let us know what you decided to do.

4. Oh, please, there is no such thing

What you can do is serve lime wedges and sour cream with it. Both milk and acid can tame capsaicin.

Watering it down won't work. What you can try is adding a couple of cans of plain beans to it. You'll still need the sour cream and lime.

6. Beat me to it.

If it don't burn, it ain't hot enough.

8. I like it hot enough that my eyelids sweat

That didn't go over all that well in Boston but by the time I left, all my friends were chile heads.

5. The dry beans are still cooking - there may be hope yet!

(Growl) the on-line recipe called for 1 tablespoon, and i cut that in half! (Growl)

9. Sour cream in the chili?

 

Oh, yuck. What a dreadful idea.

Either double or triple the batch without adding more chili, or throw it out, or just endure.

Alas, it's an easy mistake to make with any seasoning.

10. What am I missing...add less. I think cayenne is more controllable than biting in to a pepper flake
