When it lacks cumin. And for red chili, when it lacks ancho chiles. For me,
those are the flavors that define chili. Apparently for a lot of people, because
"chili powder" has both.

Same answer.

Chili is a stew. Many things are a stew.

Gumbo requires either okra or filé powder. And lacks cumin or anchos.
