Mexican food lover and Heartburn

Is there a way to eat Mexican food without heart burn? A way to reduce the acidity of foods? I love spicy foods but medicines take away the needed acidity to digest foods -- I just change my lifestyle and what I eat...

Would baking soda/powder work? Any ideas are welcome :)

If you find a way, please let me know! My husband loves to fix fajitas, but I find the chilli really upsets my stomach and gives me even worse diarrohea,(I have Crohn's)  so he has to fix my chicken without chillis. I can still eat the guacamole, tomato and red pepper salsa, and creme fraiche. Bit difficult if you are eating out though. Where did the idea of baking soda/powder idea come from? Will be intrigued to learn.
Liz.

I just take a Pepcid or a Zantac before eating anything really spicy - all the stuff I really love!  Pepcid and Zantac work differently from the Proton Pump Inhibitor meds like Prilosec or Nexium or Aciphex.  No worries about not having enough acid to digest what you eat.
