How do I tone down a spicy buffalo sauce?
I made a dish that has loads of buffalo sauce but it is way to spicy. What are things I can use to tone it down so my mouth doesn't disintegrate?
Usually a buffalo sauce is made with a bottle of Franks or something of that nature. I have found with all the many options of easy in the bottle buffalo sauce, Franks is the most mild. There are a couple of options I do to tone it down.
This brand makes a "wing" sauce that is not as hot as the sauce, however I do not like the after taste...
I like to dilute the sauce with some unsalted butter, I know not the healthiest option, but sure darn good.
Another way to create a buffalo sauce is to add a little sweet essence to it, a touch of BBQ sauce, the sweet will counter balance the spice.
That is the main idea, spicy will tone down with a little sweet or sour additive, so use your palette's preference. Hope this helps!
Sugar usually does the job. However, you could have blended in more water in and used less sauce and this usually does the job. (e.g., I made Zatarians' Black Beans and Rice for my family two days ago. The last time I made it for them they thought it was too spicy, so I used regular rice and blended it into the recipe and it worked out great)
Try some natural yoghurt Stir some in and and see how hot it is. If its too hot add more yoghurt to it.
I don't have yogurt on hand. Would sour cream work or do you think it would taste strange?
A sweet barbecue sauce would be the best way to tone it down though if you want great chicken wings in the future hunt for a Buffalo Wing Sauce that is not to spicy for you. But know that most Buffalo Wing Sauces will have some fire to them.
The first thing that comes to my mind is to mix in some butter. I know it adds to the fat content but it will keep it creamy and should dilute the heat for you.
If you listen to me you buy in the store
You can cut the spice with any kind of acid. Yogurt or sour cream work well, or add some lemon or orange juice, if you have it. Another option would be to add some tomato puree (or crushed tomatoes, if you don't mind changing the texture), because they're high in acid as well. Bright herbs like cilantro or fresh parsley can help, too!
The easiest this is put in half as much next time. Dairy products will calm it down. Even ranch or blue cheese dressings can help
The spice level in a sauce can be reduced by adding tomato ketchup, unsalted tomato puree(homemade), dry coconut powder, white poppy seeds powder. Mix any one of the above ingredients according to your preference and check the taste. Add more quantity to the sauce until the required spice level is reached.

How do I make my home made salsa less spicy?Ok so I made a big batch and I guess I put too many peppers in it because now my husband can't eat it. Can I just add more tomato or is there another way to calm the amount of heat? I don't want to ruin it or waste it, any ideas?
