Since you can't remove heat that's already present, your safest bet is to serve something cooling along with the sauce. If you tell me what the sauce is meant to accompany, then maybe I can offer a more succinct answer

Since we don't know what's in it, it is hard to guess what will work. First, I suggest you make another batch without the chipotle, then combine the 2 and adjust taste. Or just start adding in all the other ingredients and adjust taste. If it goes, you can turn it into a sour cream dip/sauce as the fat will coat your tongue and sooth it. Bottom line it that there is no magic way to just remove hot peppers.

Sweet generally helps with heat so maybe you could add more pineapple? Or a teaspoon or 2 of sugar.
