Whoops- soup is too spicy

CarmenR | Oct 25, 2010 07:51 AM

I don't know how I managed to do it, but I made my chicken tortilla soup WAY too spicy (I believe it's actually black pepper spice but I'm not entirely sure...this was a latenight concoction after happyhour) I tried adding potatoes, no dice. I already have WAY too much of it so adding more of the other ingredients is not really an option- I was thinking of trying to add milk, which is something I've never done before in a slow-cooked soup. This is a crockpot soup so it's pretty hot, will milk curdle if I add it directly?
I also have some light coconut milk which I think might be a good addition since the flavor pallette isn't inherently latin tasting (all I taste is chiles and pepper at this point.) Similarly, can I add this to the entire pot? Or do I need to finish each bowl with it?

Forgive my amateur questions!
