How to Deal With the After-Effects of Eating Spicy Food

This Fireman's Firehouse chili is no joke! While many people won't feel a burn on their tongue after eating this, there are a good number of people who will. Knowing how to properly deal with the burn of spicy food is important, as taking the wrong steps will only make the problem worse.

Whatever you do, don't reach for a glass of water! This is many people's first instinct when they're trying to cool their mouth down, but it will actually make the problem worse. Since the component of a spicy pepper that makes it spicy is oil-based, water won't do anything to it. Reach for a glass of milk or other dairy instead. Most dairy contains a compound that can help neutralize spice.

If you don't have milk or another dairy drink on hand, an acidic drink can work, too. Something acidic will help neutralize the spice in your mouth and bring you back to an even playing field. Orange juice is a great option here.

Outside of these options, sometimes it's best to just wait it out. The heat will fade eventually, although it may take several minutes. Always respect your own heat tolerance, and remember that you can adjust recipes accordingly if you want to turn the heat up or down!
