If it's a beefy veggie type soup you can add a can of tomatoes.

If it can be made into a cream soup, addition of cream might help.

If not, I know of no other way to lower the heat than to dilute it. You could make another batch and mix the two, or as pdswife said add tomatoes or another appropriate fluid.

Maybe someone else will have a better idea, I hope so.

Try a few lime drops. You can also water it down with some more broth.

Rather than dding vrius other ingredients that will alter the taste of the soup, make another batch or half batch with no spicy ingredients and combine them. Then you'll have the soup you expected that you can freeze the extra.

Wow, that was an old thread. Thank you for digging out rather than starting new thread.

I am with Andy on this one. Nothing else will work. and you cannot simply add to soup more vegies and more water, that will not work either. You have to make new batch of soup and then mix it together. Loeftovers are good for freezer, just like Andy said.
