runaway spoon has answered your question but i would add that CUMIN, cumino, preferably toasted and ground finely, is the primary flavor /spice component of chili powder.

Yes, American style chili powder. I use a mild version from Penzeys, but it is totally personal taste. You can use a spicer version.

All the other spices are ones typically found in a chili spice blend so I would assume that they mean cayenne. 1.5 tsp wouldn't add a whole lot of heat even if I'm wrong.
And the chili in the photo isn't as red as mine get when I add the spice blend.
