Usually sugar is the counter to chilli, or yoghurt or coconut milk

In what? Con carne? If you have any more mince and tomatoes available I guess doubling the quantities without adding more seasoning might help.
Or you could call for El Nombre...!

If it's for the kids, how about adding a dollop of creme fraiche or greek yogurt to theirs just before serving - and mix with loads of rice or whatever.

Good tip: if you get chilli in your eyes,rub yours (or someone else's hair in them.) The natural oil counterracts it.

My children eat a lot of stuff with chilli in it (as I love it) and we do the yoghurt thing.

add lime or lemon juice and sugar, or if chilli con carne, cdrinking chocolate / cocoa powder.
