Hi, not sure what step in the process you are in but if you haven't baked it off I'd suggest mixing in something spicy like jalapeno or cayenne pepper to offset the sweetness.

Agree. And/or:
a touch of salt;
some cheddar cheese (if your family does that);
unsweetened whip cream as a garnish.

Ignore the whipped cream; I was thinking of apple pie.
But yes to the salt and cheese.
Also, some plain vegetables - not just the spicy ones - will help dilute the sweetness.
