What happens at Nuthatcher Farm when the chickens get tired of the same old chicken feed? The rooster hatches a plan! With a pinch of genius, a dash of resourcefulness, and a little pilfering from the farmer's garden, the chickens whip up a scrumptious snack of chips and salsa. When the rest of the barnyard gets a whiff of the spicy smells and want to join in, it can mean only one thing . . . FIESTA! But when the big day arrives, all their spicy southwestern supplies are gone! Could Mr. and Mrs. Nuthatcher have caught on to the flavor craze?

The fad comes to an abrupt end when Mr. and Mrs. Nuthatcher decide they want a piece of this culinary action, but the rooster isn't fazed: he immerses himself in French cookbooks ("though nobody was quite certain where the rooster learned how to read") and discovers his inner Julia Child.
