Toning down homemade hot sauce

I am always on the look-out for a project. So last night, I used a Rick Bayless recipe for homemade hot sauce. The flavor is great. The problem is that its too hot. Does anyone have any advice on how I can tone down the heat? I'm afraid just adding water would dilute it too much. Thanks!
