Not sure what you mean by "already mixed it in". Into the shells? If so, there's nothing you can do.

You could just spread it flat on a paper towel lined plate to blot out any excess moisture. But this may also blot out some of the flavors. Check the seasoning (sweetness) after blotting and adjust.
