Chio Delgado is the Chili Man--and he knows how to turn up the heat! Chino's not only a chili professional --he runs a chain of chili restaurants--but a veteran of more cook-offs than you can count. Hallie Bergstrom, on the other hand is new the world of chili, with its secret ingredients, odd alliances and funny names, her alais is Classy Lassie, and she 's involved in all this because of a bet...with Chino. If her chili can beat his on the cook-off circuit, he won't turn the Cellar--Cedarville's historic coffeehouse --into just another link in his chili chain. More than just Chili sizzles!!!
