Quick Tips & Ideas

Relieve the Burn of Hot Chiles

Milk and other dairy products contain casein, a protein that works against the capsaicin found in hot chiles. The capsaicin is what causes the pain in your mouth when you are exposed to the hot chiles contained in some dishes. So the next time your mouth feels like it is on fire, reach for a gallon of milk rather than a glass of ice water.
