It is very dismaying to prepare a delicious soup recipe only to find that you have accidentally added too much pepper. This is a guide about fixing soup with too much pepper.
I made a big pot of vegetable soup using up leftovers. I peppered it twice, my mistake. Can I save the pot of soup? It is currently a bit hot to taste.
I put too much pepper in my vegetable soup. What can I do?
Add a cut up potato. Works a treat for absorbing excess spices of all kinds.
I made a soup with some hot sauce and it is way too "spicy hot". How can I balance out the spicy heat?

I made a pot of Mulligatawney and I thought it was ruined, it was so spicy. So I sliced a large potato into thin slices and cooked until it was tender. After I pureed the soup, I served it with a large spoonful of creme fresh. It was delicious and no one complained! The potato improved the texture as well
What do you do if you put too much pepper in soup? Is there a fix for this?

A bit of sugar helps, too!
