The man who claims that he invented flamin' hot cheetos didn't

Turns out the story of Richard Montañez, a Frito-Lay janitor who rose through the ranks and invented hot cheetos, isn't true. A junior employee named Lynne Greenfeld actually came up with the name "and shepherded the line into existence."

However, he did come up with flamin' hot popcorn, and other products — just not the original hot cheeto.

Montañez's story is supposed to be turned into a biopic directed by Eva Longoria.

The whole piece from the LATimes is very good — give it a read!
