    Hello all,
    quick query for those more knowledgeable than me. I made a massive pot of spicy Mexican bean stew. However it’s rather too spicy. What can I add to of to reduce the spice. Last night we had it with a mountain of sour cream but wondering if there’s anything else? 
    Not really, you could try a sprinkle of vinegar or lime juice when it's in your bowl, but soured cream or yoghurt, anything like that is the only way  sorry....or make a chilli less chilli and mix, or add more toms/beans etc to dilute the spice.

    Shampoo? No thanks, I'll have real poo...
