An unlikely heir to a Mexican fast-food franchise goes 'cuisine' hunting for the next culinary big thing, and finds himself in a small, dusty New Mexican town where foodies come from all over to salivate over the culinary treats of a local, authentic, and feisty female chef.

Hard to get through
Verified purchase
Unfortunately I didn't like this film. I couldn't finish it. I didn't sense any chemistry between the lead characters, and it was difficult to keep my attention focused on the movie. If you like Hallmark type movies, I would say this fits into that category. I think it might be a great movie to keep on in the background while you are doing something else.

Great movie, nice romance with great charactors.

This movie was a nice change from the normal sleaze sex filled movies. The characters where interesting and fun to watch.

Rejected by Telemundo, Hallmark and Oxygen. Badly numbing
Verified purchase
In one of those compromise moments on Amazon Prime we settled on a movie set in New Mexico that looked like Taos. What we got was some slices of footage from the state tourism group... which was literally the only pleasant part. It is not often you see an entire cast smirk their way through a horrible script, but that was almost the only uplifting part. Clearly whoever was the turkey that wrote or produced had a 1930's movie set in a poor Mexico town (the fiesta scene would of been comical if not done so badly) that set that 21st century New Mexico ... which is a tad different. I would like to point to an attempt at acting to rise above the material, but no animals appear to have been used in the film. Awful.

Harmless
Verified purchase
It is true that there is no naughty language in this film, no nudity, and only the slightest suggestion of sex happening. And yes, the little girl is adorable. But the lead man looks and acts like a jerk; it’s hard to imagine what the lead woman sees in him. Most of all, there is scarcely any script – throughout most of the film you can watch cooking and talking about cooking and learn something about New Mexican green chiles. In other words, this is a harmless movie suitable for all ages but very slow moving and with nothing much happening, kind of like the patterns which used to appear on TV screens between programs.

Great movie! Briefly features Jen Lilley which only adds to the movie.
Verified purchase
This is a great movie! If you enjoy Hallmark Channel romantic comedies, I would say this is on the upper end of that spectrum. This movie also features Ms. Jen Lilley in only a couple of scenes. But they are well done and definitely add to the movie. So if you're fan of Ms. Jen Lilley, then you'll definitely love this movie.

I WILL HAVE ONE ORDER OF A GREAT FIVE STAR MOVIE
Verified purchase
NO SPOILERS. I LOVE ROMANTIC COMEDIES, AND THIS WAS A FIVE CHILI PEPPER AFFAIR, AS YOU WILL SEE. SET IN NEW MEXICO, I
DO NOT KNOW WHICH WAS FINER, WATCHING THE PLOT OR THE DELICIOUS FOOD. IN A LARGE CORPORATE OFFICE IN THE
STATE, A FAST FOOD CHAIN SPECIALIZING IN MEXICAN CUISINE, SENDS ITS CORPORATE SPIES TO ALL PARTS OF THE USA TO
GATHER INTEL AND RECIPES FOR ITS DROWNING BUSINESS. THE SON OF THE BOSS, A LAWYER WHO IS MOST LAZY, MUST GO TO THE BORDER AREA AND SURVEIL. HE HAS JUST HAD HIS GIRLFRIEND DITCH HIM, IS IS NOT VERY JOYFUL. HE ARRIVES AT AN
APPARENTLY FAMOUS LOCAL RESTAURANT KNOWN FOR ITS DISHES BASED ON ITS HOME GROWN CHILI PEPPERS, A GREAT FAMILY SECRET. AFTER MANY COMPLICATIONS HE FALLS HEAD OVER HEELS IN LOVE WITH THE DIVORCED OWNER AND HER DARLING
DAUGHTER. BUT LIFE IS NOT SO SIMPLE, AS YOU WILL SEE. AS THE DENOUEMENT AND FINALE ARRIVE, I HOPE YOU WILL AGREE
THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST CHARMING ROMANTIC COMEDIES MADE IN A LONG TIME. PLEASE ENJOY.

No chemistry, acting was mediocre.
Verified purchase
Headline says it all. I'm a fan of Hallmark, so I like cute and I'm okay with predictable. But I still expect quality. Supposed to be cute, wasn't too well done. No chemistry between the lead actors, the lines were cheesy and pretty much ridiculous throughout. I can't say the female lead was a bad actress, the little girl was okay too, but the male lead was horrible. He had the same expression all the time and the writers were clearly taking a holiday and laughing because they were still getting paid. It was clean, family friendly, and the good guys win in the end, so I gave it two stars instead of one. Even if you enjoy Hallmark cheese and predictable sweetness, you probably won't find much to like about this movie.
