    Spicy soup help

    I just finished a soup with:
    12 bean
    cilantro
    diced tomatoes
    large can of chipoles in adobo pureed
    2x anaheim chile
    celery
    onion
    cumin
    anaheim chile spice

    It is way to spicy. Almost painful. I should have seeded the peppers. Is there anyway to tone it down?

    Make more without the spicy stuff and mix it in. Or add more of whatever the base is, maybe some broth.
    -------

    Some sort of pithy irrelevant one-liner should go here.

    Excellent idea! I knew it was simple Thanks. I will freeze what I have and use it as a base for other soups.

    Chop a potato into big chunks and put them in the soup for several hours and them remove them.
    It will absorb some of the spice.

    Did the recipe really call for an entire can of chipotle chilies? I have a chicken tortilla soup recipe that's pretty spicy and it only calls for two of the chilies minced up.

    Thanks for tv potato idea Allen. Unfortunately I don't have any. I didn't use a recipe. The pot is too full to add any more of anything currently

    to spicy sounds good i would say it is just fine or maybe add a habanero to it but that is just me, never too spicy i would just enjoy the heat

    A bit of white vinegar can help, too.

    Use half the chipotles.
    Seed the anaheims
    Put a dollop of sour cream in the soup.

    does it really need 'anaheim chile spice' on top of the chiles?

    Exactly what I was thinking. An entire can of chipoltle chilies is waaaaaaay hot!
