We go into the kitchen and follow the recipes to the letter, but sometimes there can be a mistake. We go overboard with the salt or we get out of hand with the spicy. A good dish has to have a good balance of flavors, so you have to add the right seasoning to make it happen.

That is why it is good that you have these tips on hand so that if you go overboard with the spicy recipe you can solve it. Take note!

  • Dairy: The best way to neutralize an overly spicy dish is dairy. It depends on how the recipe is, you can add milk, coconut milk, yogurt, and even a little butter. Any food that has to do with dairy will help reduce the spiciness.
  • Nuts: If the dish has turned out to be too spicy, another recommendation to correct it is nuts. Crushed almonds, peanut butter, or tahini (sesame paste). The fat in nuts helps balance flavors.
  • Vegetables with sugars: Adding vegetables to the dish is a solution to reduce the heat. Vegetables such as carrots or potatoes can be great allies. These vegetables absorb the spicy flavor, even the excess salt, and thanks to their sugar content they give it a sweet touch.
  • Stews with more broth: If the stew you have prepared is a broth, the best way to reduce the heat is by adding more broth. If you see that there is already too much broth, you can remove a little of the spicy one and add the one that is not yet spicy.
  • Flavors contrast: Citrus. This recommendation is especially suitable for vinaigrettes or salad dressings. Adding citrus fruits like lemon juice is usually a good idea. You can also add a few pieces of tomato to offset the spice.

Anyway, the best advice that can be given is to add a little spice, because if you lack it, it is easier to add than then reduce.
