    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?

    Acid, sugar and butterfat all tame the heat of peppers. Depending on your salsa, you could add any of those, say the juice of a lime or a lemon. Stir it well, let it rest a while, taste it, and do more if you need to.

    add a pinch of sugar and some lime juice to help cut the heat and keep it flavorful.

      Yes I would do the same, plus the lime adds a hint of tang.

    First of all wear gloves. Then cut your peppers open and wash away the seeds inside the peppers and then chop them up. You'll be getting rid of a lot of the fire this way.

    What you have already made though can not really be changed other than to use less of it.

    Adding onion paste fried in butter, will turn the salsa less spicy. You can even add honey to it.
