Desflemar: To Neutralize by Soaking This refers to taking the "bite" out of a hot fresh chile, or even a strong onion, by soaking in a solution of water with either vinegar or salt, both of which draw out the heat. If handling a fresh chile causes either coughing or watery eyes, this is a good indication that the chile will be quite hot, and soaking for one-half to one hour will help to neutralize it. Fresh jalapeņos being prepared for stuffing may be soaked overnight in milk after being seeded. that is according to mexconnect.com
Thanks. I have heard of the technique, but never knew the name for it.

I think REAL Mexican food is one the world's great cuisines. Most Americans know little about it beyond Taco Bell, which is a shame. I look forward to trying some of your recipes.

Smile Love Mexican food!

My fondest memories of my three vacation trips to Mexico City and Guadalajara was the wonderful food.

A dear friend of mine is Hispanic and I just love all the Mexican foods that she has prepared over the years.

I have several Mexican cookbooks so I have made a few Mexican and Tex-Mex dishes.

Mexican and Italian are my favorite cuisines.
