How do you spell chili? Is it chile? Or is it chilli? We Have no idea.

1. Milk Kills Spice

Gone too far? Did those Carolina Reaper pepper pancakes drive you into a fit of twitching and sweats? Down a glass of milk. Chilies contain a substance called capsaicin, milk binds with the hot capsaicin oils to disperse them.

2. The Seeds Are Where All The Heat Is
