How to Fix Too Much Vinegar in Chili

Save

An easy way to ruin chili is by adding too much vinegar, a flavor that will overpower other ingredients. Even if you're making a spicy chili, vinegar will stand out if you've added too much, an inconvenience if you've already spent a couple hours cooking. Thankfully there are easy ways to remedy the situation. Many cooks add other ingredients to balance the flavor, including extra tomatoes and brown sugar.

Things You'll Need

  • Canned tomatoes
  • Large stirring spoon
  • Brown sugar
  • Measuring cup
  • Sour cream
  • Add a can of tomatoes if your chili tastes too strongly of vinegar. Mix tomatoes in with large stirring spoon and simmer chili for 15 minutes.

  • Add brown sugar to chili. Pour brown sugar into a measuring cup and fill to 1/8 cup. Mix brown sugar in with large stirring spoon and simmer chili for 15 minutes.

  • Taste to ensure that the chili has a good flavor. Repeat Steps 1 and/or 2 if the chili still has too much vinegar. Remove chili from stove and cool before serving.

Tips & Warnings

  • Add a dollop of sour cream when serving chili if it is too spicy or contains too much vinegar.
