If there is such a thing as a light chili this is it. The flavors are bright and lovely and it didn't sit heavy in the tummy after lunch. I made a half recipe of the chili and 4 corn muffins (not sweetened) for an excellent mid-day munch and have leftovers and 3 muffins for tomorrow (or maybe tonight?). I'm so glad that I tried this :D.
