Chili Hater's Chili

A couple of years ago, I had chili on the brain, for some odd reason, so I decided to try this again.  I pinpointed my dislike for the dish–cumin.  I’m not a fan of this spice at all.  I was reviewing a cookbook for slow cookers and found a recipe that did NOT include this, so I gave it a go.
