    My H adds ketchup to his to cool it down.

    I add cool cheese when I eat it and that does the trick if it's not too spicy.  If it is you could stir in some sour cream.

    And betrothed, I'm disgusted with most of the comments that you have posted. I don't think I've ever read such judgmental comments in my life. I'm so lucky that the girls I speak to on theknot are nothing like you...I would've never come on here for ADVICE if I would've encountered a big a bitch as you. I genuinely feel awful for your children or your future children, and I think it would be irresponsible of YOU not to invest in their future therapy sessions starting now. Because trust me when I tell you honey, they're gonna need it. ~jcaruncho2010

    Ditto sour cream.  And cheese.  Those are just normal chili toppings in our house!

    Like the others said, add sour cream.  We make a super spicy chili in my family and always mix in a big scoop of sour cream when we serve it to kids (and my wimpy palate mom)

    Yeah, I dunno what's up with the love of spicy sauce.  My mouth likes the taste, but then my lips and tongue overheat and the tingle is really uncomfortable, and then my stomach REALLY doesn't like it.  So it's a no-go.  My boyfriend goes through a huge bottle of hot sauce every couple of weeks, and when I go to Latin America for work I always bring him back a new sauce to try.

    I made a big crockpot of green chile stew a couple weeks ago that was way too spicy.  I added 1/4 cup of sugar and a can of diced tomatoes.  I didn't want to dilute it into two batches, since it was already 7 quarts and it would take forever to eat 14 quarts.  The sugar definitely took out some of the heat, but changed the flavor slightly.  It was still good, but tasted a little different.

    My body handles spicy food in much the same way.  I like the flavor, but 3 bites in my mouth is on fire and I'm done.  And then the following stomach issues are never fun.

    My stomach would explode. I do like chili powder, and use a lot more than my mom, but either it's because I buy store brands, milder brands, or keep them longer.

    Jalapenos? Oh, heck no. Can't even eat with the fork they're removed from something with.

    I made white chili last night too! Sour cream is great in white chili.

    I'm a major weenie when it comes to spicy food. I add sugar/Splenda to my bowl of regular chili. Tongue out

    I second the potato method.  That's also a good way of soaking up too much salt in a soup or chowder.
