    Hey guys
    I followed a recipe for a Brunswick stew that included some of my left over pulled pork. It tastes good but it is way to spicy. I almost think the recipe should have called for 1 teaspoon of cayenne instead of 1 tablespoon. Is there a way to tone it down. It tastes great just don't like sweating while I eat.
    Thanks guys

    I think you've answered your own question. Next time just use less cayenne. A tablespoon is a LOT, even for a huge batch. If you're wondering how to tone down the batch you've already made, try adding a little sugar. If it's still too hot a little sour cream will mellow it out. It'll be different but still really good.
  5. Butter will do the trick...

    Any kind of Dairy product will tone it down - butter, cream, sour cream, cottage cheese, etc.

    Cold Beer would do the trick for me. I love spicy.
