How to Deal with a Hot Mouth After Eating Hot Chili

Some people may feel that this chili is super hot! Spice tolerance varies from person to person, so whether this recipe is spicy for you is something only you can know! If you find yourself with a hot mouth after eating this chili, follow our tips for dealing with it.

First and foremost, do not drink water! It may be tempting to rush for a glass of cold water when the burning starts. You think you're helping yourself, but in reality you're just making the situation worse. The compound that makes peppers spicy is oil-based, so water is ineffective against it. You've likely heard the saying “oil and water don't mix” before.

Instead, go for a dairy-based drink if you can. Milk or a yogurt-based smoothie are two great options. If you don't have a dairy-based drink available, even some ice cream could help. Dairy is arguably the best foe of spice, so you should find relief this way. Keep in mind that the relief may not be instant; keep drinking at a steady pace and you should see relief soon.

If you don't have any dairy available or you can't consume dairy, no worries. An acidic drink can do the trick, too. Our best pick for this category is orange juice, but anything acidic will do. Remember to drink it slowly; resist the temptation to guzzle it all down at once!
