"Wow, I can see why you won the contest! Good Job! This is something I would expect in my home state- CA; you must be Enlightened! (I'm serious- no derogatories intended to anyone). Everything's there: sweet, sour, salty, bitter: you did a great job of minimizing salt, but still have a hint of it; same with sweet. The extra "sour" compensates for keeping this health- friendly, and the heat from the small amount of chile compensates for the extra "sour." The cumin is just enough to give this a hint of "smokiness." This ROCKS (in the words of the Newest Generation)!"
