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.
Sour cream is great way to cool down a spicy soup. It won't be a clear brother soup anymore, but it will work.
I put too much pepper in my vegetable soup. What can I do?
If it were me, I would make a second batch without pepper, then combine the two. Don't know how well it would work, but maybe it's worth a try. XD Then you can freeze some.
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?

Dilute it down and then add more of the other ingredients to bring the original taste back.
If I get "heavy handed" with my chili, I just add a little sugar and that cools it off nicely. (I use hot sauce as well as chili powder in my chili) Maybe it will work for your soup, too.
You can add some instant potatoes or diced potatoes to the soup. It will help, good luck.
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?

Prevention is worth a pound of cure! Get a pepper grinder; use peppercorns; and grind them fresh you will marvel as your taste buds jump for joy! Other than this, try and scoop as much out as you can; and perhaps add more liquid and make it larger.
A bit of sugar helps, too!
