Nous avons chaud, is correct.

Avoir chaud. "j'ai chaud, tu as chaud, elle a chaud" au futur "j'aurai chaud, tu auras chaud... " au passé "j'ai eu chaud, tu as eu chaud...

However, you can write "Nous sommes chauds" if you were some pancakes in a pan that would be able to tell :

— Hé, les enfants, nous sommes chauds, venez nous manger.

But I think you are not a pancake.

French sportsmen can also say "Nous sommes chauds" but that means " We are ready and determined to crush these damned English at this rugby match". But often the English win.

On sent que tu es chaud Alex. Mais battre les Anglais sera plus difficile que de battre les Italiens. Italiens dont j'apprécie la persévérance et que j'aimerais voir remporter au moins une fois le tournoi des six nations avant de mourir. (Avant, car après, je ne suis plus sûr du tout de capter le réseau.)
