All you can do is make another batch (or half batch) without any cayenne and combine them. Chili freezes well.

Something else you could try would be to add a quantity of cooked rice or pasta to your too-hot chili. You could even add a quantity of shredded cheese along with the starch & turn the whole thing into a casserole. Yes, it will still be hot, but the cheese & the pasta or rice should cut things down a bit. Something else that will cut the heat will be to serve it topped with a goodly dollop of sour cream - dairy is a great heat breaker.
