Thank you everyone. I had heard about the potato, but I thought that was to make something less salty. As it turned out, the soup was overly thick anyway, so as I gradually added water to it, it seemed to turn down the heat. Thanks everyone!!!

Sometimes lime or citric taste helps counter spice. Depends in your soup, try on a small portion first.
