How Do You Make Spicy Food Cooler? What Neutralizes Spice Best? Dairy, Starch, Acid or Sweetener?

We have all been there; you take a big bite of your favorite Mexican dish and find that you got more than you intended to as your mouth starts to slowly get fired up. While some people might enjoy heat with their Mexican cuisine, there are others that prefer a small amount a heat, but don’t want to take over the other flavors that you enjoy. When you have spicy food that you’re wanting to cool down, there are a few methods that can help. Eddie’s Mexican Restaurant is here to share some tips to help you cool down your food when it’s too spicy for you.

How Do You Tone Down Spicy Food?

Spices are always used to enhance the flavors in many Mexican dishes. If you find that the heat is more than you bargained for, you can try these methods to help take the heat out of your food:
– Dairy: A great way to take the heat out of your meal is incorporating dairy into the meal. This can be done with things like sour cream, a glass of milk, yogurt, and more. The protein that is found in dairy products can help to break down the capsaicin that is prevalent in spicy food. Keep in mind that full- fat dairy products do a better job.
– Starch: Starchy foods can also help to take the heat out of you meal. They have a way of absorbing the capsaicin and cooling things down. When you add some rice, bread, and even tortillas, you might find that the spice is more tolerable.
– Acid: If you have a spicy food that you’re finding is too much, you can also use citrus, vinegar or other acidic foods to reduce the heat. Acid that is found in these ingredients will actually bind themselves to the capsaicin molecules and reduce the burn. This is one of the reasons that many Mexican dishes are accompanied with a lime wedge that can be sprinkled on your food. Some people will marinate the protein they are using in a vinegar based marinade to help keep the heat at bay.
– Sweetener: Shockingly enough, adding some sweetener to your dish can help as well. If you’re feeling the heat and want to tone it down, you can add some honey, sugar, and even palm sugar to help take the spice out of it.
– Small Bites: If you enjoy the heat, but you don’t have the ability to tolerate it well, taking small bites is one of the best ways to enjoy the food and the spice without it overpowering everything else. It is also the healthiest way to consume food.
