enfriarse, verb:
to get cold; to cool down

Enfriar is the verb formed from frió, cold. You often use it in the reflexive form enfriarse. For instance, your mom or someone who’s cooking for you might say this to get you to the table:

Se te está enfriando la comida.
Your food’s getting cold.

Or, if your food is too hot, enfriarse is also a useful word.

Deja que tu sopa se enfríe* un poquito.
Let your soup cool down a bit.
