Chili powder without cumin
Hey guys, I want to try my hand at making chili. The recipe I've got calls for a ton of chili powder, such as Gebhardt's. However, from what I've seen, Gebhardt's has cumin in it, and I HATE cumin! (Yes, I'm planning on leaving out the actual cumin the recipe also calls for). Does anyone know of a good commercial chili powder that does not contain cumin or have a recipe for chili powder that doesn't include cumin?

Oh, and PS: I know lots of folks that are not fond of cumino, so you're in good company there. However, if you get the chance, buy some fresh cumin seeds and grind them to a powder in a spice grinder. If the intoxicating citrus-like aroma of fresh ground cumino does not make a believer of you, try just a pinch in any recipe that calls for a teaspoon. It just might change your mind!
Simple: Look for ground Ancho chile. Prepared chili powders may contain garlic, Mexican oregano, cayenne and / or paprika in addition to cumin so you may want to adjust your other seasonings a little, but straight ancho will get you what you're looking for.
