You can adjust the chili spices to match your own taste. This does not have a LOT of heat. Add more hot chili powder and red pepper flakes instead of regular chili powder if you like it hot.
I buy reduced-sodium cans when I can find them because they are so much healthier. You can then add just as much salt as you like to taste.
If it’s the middle of winter and peppers are hard to find, you can buy bags of frozen chopped peppers and onions. It’s not quite as good, but it is a great substitute. It can also make it easier to stock all the ingredients.
