Not sure unless you can drain them & add more water. Or maybe you could cook more beans without seasoning & mix them together to try and equal them out. Good luck!

The only way I know how is to double up on the beans.If you out did your self then tripple up.

Put a little sugar in it to tone it down.

Put them in a strainer, Rinse them off with water and start all over again.

unfortunately if the pepper is way to overpowered, you may just have to cook more beans to dilute the pepper flavor. however, if you add a very bland veggie (like celery) it sometimes reduces the effectiveness of salt and pepper. unfortunately, i don't think celery goes well with beans....

Sometimes, potatoes are used to remove salt from a dish ..not sure if it will work with pepper but it is worth a try. Add some water and simmer a few sliced potatoes in with the beans....don't let them get too soft or you won't be able to get them out
