salsa is too spicy! help!

Today we smoked some sweet peppers and then combined them with our usual salsa ingredients: tomatoes, red onion, chopped cilantro, salt, pepper, lime juice, and a dash of extra virgin olive oil. It is the same general recipe that we've done before and I removed the seeds and ribs from the jalapenos, but for some reason this batch seems to be extra spicy.

Normally extra-spicy salsa wouldn't be an issue but I made it for the weekly beach bash that my family does. Not everyone is a fan of the heat and there are some guests joining us and I have no idea what their tastes are like. I don't want to burn up everyone's taste buds and ruin their day.

Is there any way to moderate the heat? I don't have more tomatoes to add to the mix. All I have is more lime juice, salt, pepper, olive oil, red onion, and some ripe avocados.
