Make a small batch with no seasonings & mix them together. No way to undo the heat.

Try adding a little Wondra or flour and sugar and cinnamon to balance out the heat.

I don't know of anything except to send hubby out for another 1 lb of ground beef, brown it and drain the fat in a separate skillet and then combine it with the too spicy batch. If you don't have a hubby, you'll have to go yourself. {#emotions_dlg.laugh}

If it is that spicy try adding more liquids, like tomato juice, add, taste test add more if needed.

Maybe try a potato(peeled and quartered) this absorbs salt , this I do know. Discard before eating

Dairy, add some sour cream and/or cheese

Worrying is like rocking back and and forth in a rocking chair. It gives you something do to, but gets you nowhere!

SUGAR - it will cut down on the spice.. I just did the same thing this week. Too spicy - I added sugar.

More liquid will dilute the chili. If you used tomato juice, add more or H20.

Thanks everyone for ideas, I added some plain Greek yogurt (I use this for sour cream) and some cheese and no one complained at all! Thanks again and have a great night.

My MIL goofed and made her chili too spicy. She gave the pot to us since she declared it unedible. Yea, that is the kind of person she is. LOL

All I did was add a can of rinsed red beans (pinto beans would work too) and a dollop of ketsup.

The chili was delish! Perfect in fact.

I rinsed the beans to get rid of the extra salt in the juice so I didn't add any more spice. Better yet, use the salt free kind of you can find them.

I've never tried this but I've always heard to cook a peeled potato in the sauce and it'll absorb the excess spices.

A can of salt free diced tomatoes. A can or two of beans. Half cup of dried mashed potato flakes. Cup of cooked rice. Couple teaspoons full of sugar.
