The heat from a pepper (capsaicin) is fat soluble, so the tomatoes aren't help that in any way. It could just be that you prefer the flavor profile they provide. I approach that from a different angle by using different varieties of peppers. Red jalapenos have a different flavor than green, chipotles (smoked jalapenos) add a nice earthy smoky taste and aroma, shishitos have a slightly bitter taste, habanero and their variants like Carolina Reapers pack a lot of heat but also have a very sweet and fruity taste to them*.

Instead of sliced peppers or chopped peppers try this... buy (or make your own) dried ones then remove and discard the seeds and veins from them. Boil peppers for 10-15 minutes, cover and pull from the heat letting them chill out for half an hour. This helps soften up the outer skin.

Pull the peppers from the liquid but don't discard it yet! Then toss them into a blender and puree into a smooth paste, using only enough of the boiling liquid to allow you to blend completely. That way you can leave the whole peppers, get all their flavor, heat, and vitamins!

* No seriously! Take a habanero, completely remove the seeds and veins (remove more than you think), dice it very finely and mix with diced pineapple and a bit of mint, serve on vanilla ice cream. Alton Brown's Spicy Pineapple Sauce[^].

Or look for habanada peppers, it is a mutation of the habanero. All the flavor and none of the heat. Like... zero.
