Take the heat out of salsa

Is there a way to take the heat out of salsa other than adding more tomato/onion/etc?

Apparently these jalapenos were a lot spicier than the last bunch I got.

took this from a thread i made about salsa a few years ago. i dunno how true it is

I think adding lemon juice does the trick, but sometimes you have to add some salt to take the sour aspect out. I wonder if lime juice would do the same thing as that would work better in your salsa. I know people who swear that lemon juice neutralizes too much pepper heat.

I thought that I remembered that too so I squeezed another half lime in. I can't tell if it helped or not b/c my mouth was already on fire.

Adding a little honey would probably work.

Next time cut them open and take out the seeds and white veins. Just use the green.

Learned that lesson the hard way also.

I've ruined several dishes with fresh jalapeno or chili peppers.

They way I do it now is chop what I think I will need and add about half to the dish, then taste and add more is required.

I bought the fixings for a pico de gallo today. Love me some fresh pico. I'm going to make soft tacos tomorrow with a flank steak I'm marinating.

That is a good way to add anyhting to a recipe. It is easier to add than to try and take away.

I love some good fresh pico too! Makes a hell of an omlette with some of that said marianted steak and some queso.

I think I'll be doing this from now on.

Japs are very inconsistent with heat...some are very mild, others will light you up.
