My BF did that the other day and I tried to eat it but my mouth was burning. You could dilute it a bit. (BF put a huge long jalapeno in it:( )

Add more lentils and stuff to dilute it. Also, dip bread in it.

I love a little plain yogurt in lentil soup . . . that would cool it down.

Eat it with a piece of bread/honey and a glass of milk. A least, that's what we do when the green chile stew turns out too hot.

When I have salsa that's too hot I just add some sour cream-yummy!

sorry, had to go find a box of tissues...

I found some Naan bread in the fridge...1 month past the expiry date o_O

tossed it out...

put some cream in it, which helped.

Tomorrow, I think I will get some more lentils and broth and dilute whats left. It was a 'make supper from whatevers in the cupboard' sort of day.
