Taming Out-of-Control Pepper

The secret to taming an over-peppered soup or sauce, says nelly k, is lemon juice. You may need to add a bit of sugar to counteract the lemon’s tartness. AngelaDay tried this tip out on too-peppery gravy and says it works. ChiliDude recommends adding a bit of canned corn, if the dish is appropriate, saying its sweetness contrasts with the pepper (works well with dishes with too much chile, too).
