    Made an enormous ie. 12 portions + pot of chillie con carne last night and for some reason, despite using my normal recipe and chilli’s (scotch bonnet) it is ‘blow your head off hot’. ๐Ÿ˜ณ

    Rather enjoyed it myself, aided by several cans of suitable coolant but partner and daughter are due home tonight and will not be imnpressed !

    I have put a whole potato in it as I remember reading somewhere that it absorbs some of the spice but any suggestions welcome as long as they don’t involve cooking a new batch. Cheers

    Serve with big dods of cream and guacamole.

    M/W/C TFU?

    Seriously, there’s not a lot you can do, but adding sugar can help, but obviously makes it sweeter.

    You could mix/serve with natural yogurt or creme fresh etc. Again it will alter the taste but will reduce the heat.

    LOL ๐Ÿ˜€

    Cheers guys – sounds like a good plan and has the added bonus that they’ll think I have put a bit of effort into getting ‘all the bits’ for a proper mexican meal + daughter will probably need the extra calories after being at uni for the past few weeks.

    Defintely natural yogourt or soured cream. Either work well and remove the heat

    HTFU or cook them something else. Don’t go spoiling it with dairy products.

    throw a load of chocolate in it, that should do the trick

    Make another batch without chilli in, then mix the two together.

    YEs Drac, very funny…gave me quite the giggles that one…not that obvious either, don’t be so modest

    That sounds like the ‘too much extra work’ option! Been shopping and will take the slightly easier way out by adding some more mushrooms, peppers and another tin of kidney beans. If they still think it’s too hot I have the yoghurt/salsa/guacamole on standby as recommended above.

    Interesting idea. I saw a programme a while back where they cooked a venison with chocolate stew and people seemed to like it. Have you tried it ?

    choclate and chili works well, but use coco powder not chocolate, tastes much better.

    vennison tatest good with anything strong/sweet. Best recipie ive come accross is to put dried dates in the stew, with carrots, potato, parsnip etc.

    And the yogurt joke was obvious, well to me anyway, but then i was a student till last year.
