Flamin’ Hot (Featuring David Quinones)

by | Jun 23, 2023 | 0 comments

On the 314th episode of Piecing It Together, David Quinones joins me to talk about Flamin’ Hot. This true-ish story about Richard Montanez, the Frito-Lay janitor who came up with Flamin’ Hot Cheetos isn’t exactly accurate, but it’s a lot of fun. Puzzle pieces include Norma Rae, The Founder, Lord of War and Chef.

As always, SPOILER ALERT for Flamin’ Hot and the movies we discuss!

Written by Lewis Colick and Linda Yvette Chavez

Directed by Eva Longoria

Starring Jesse Garcia, Annie Gonzalez, Dennis Haysbert, Matt Walsh, Tony Shaloub

Searchlight / Hulu
