It is not 5 Alarm hot. It really doesn’t need that much heat. If you like it hot then add heat after you have some in your bowl or play around with the heat as you make it. I don’t make it hot because that way everyone can have some no matter their spicy heat tolerance. A simple hot sauce like Crystal or Tabasco is salt, red peppers, and vinegar and adds good heat and flavor to anything including this chili.
