Question Help too hot!!

I am not very well at the moment and DH made us a chicken dish with a fresh tomato based sauce. Problem is he got a little carried away with the chillis (fire-eaters at that) from our garden and it is sooooo hot! We do have leftovers and I was wondering whether anyone would know how to take some of heat out of the dish so it is more palatible.

Yep, unfortunately you cannot remove heat - you can only add more ingredients to dilute it.

I'm not sure what kind of dish it is but is it possible to turn the sauce into a rose sauce by adding sour cream or fresh cream to help soften some of the heat without losing too much of the flavour?
