can I substitute sweetened pumpkin pie mix for pure pumpkin?

Help! I asked my husband to buy a can of pumpkin for muffins, and he came home with "pumpkin pie mix," which has spices (which I guess I can live with) and cane sugar (23g in a 14oz can.) The recipe called for 2 cups of sugar to 1 can of pumpkin--should I eliminate the sugar entirely or just cut it down? Or do I need to go back to the store?
