Balancing Coriander

I've added a bit too much coriander to some pinto beans I'm cooking. Is there another seasoning I can add to balance it out? I tried cumin and chili powder and they work alright, but it's still a bit strong.

Maybe some lime juice? A dash of sugar?

Saludos, Karen

More pinto beans and more water.

I'm out of pinto beans and don't have any citrus fruit or sugar (although the coriander already tastes like lemons, so I don't think I'd add citrus on top of it).

Dag nabbit. I'm on a two month self dare to eat vegan. If I could just throw in a bit of smoked sausage, that'd clear it up immediately. Now I actually have to learn how seasonings work rather than just getting lucky on guesses.
