I suspect it is red pepper.

As Phil said, it's hard to answer if you don't describe the actual dish.

Sugar is the most effective counter, but of course you can't add it indiscriminately. Bottom line, cooking is the real world- no delete button, no escape button. And refresh isn't awfully dependable.

I guess the dish will remain a mystery.

CNTRL+ALT+DELETE?

If you made a serious error and it is a gross amount that no fixing will fix then you have to throw it out. If it is chili or something that freezes well, freezing seems to dampen the heat, but you will have to eat it later. If it is just a little too hot you can use yogurt or sour cream or a cooling side dish diners can spoon up to cool the tongue. If it is a lot then double the recipe, leave the chile flakes (red hot pepper) out of the 2nd batch and combine.
