Basically, there are two ways to reduce how spicy any soup is:

However, in your case, where you added about 8X as many peppers as you should have, I'm not sure either avenue is practical; you would have to at least triple the volume of the soup to have an effect. I suggest starting over.

    Saving the current batch as a "starter" that can be added to the new soup in small quantities could work. Especially if the soup freezes well. – AGirlHasNoName Nov 9 '18 at 0:45
