Timon and Pumbaa use bugs to make salsa. Pumbaa then tells a zebra, a gazelle, and a tiger Timon's secrets. After Timon complains to Pumbaa about the warthog telling the meerkat's secrets to others, the two go back to making their salsa.
The jungle animals go to Timon and Pumbaa to taste their salsa. The animals love their salsa, not knowing what it is actually made of, and they want Timon and Pumbaa to sell it. Timon and Pumbaa agree to sell their salsa in order to make money.
After selling the animals their salsa and making money, Timon and Pumbaa get a call from someone who wants to interview them about their salsa. Timon tells Pumbaa that he must not tell the people that their salsa is made out of bugs, otherwise they will lose their money.
A photographer shows up to the jungle. He tastes Timon and Pumbaa's salsa and takes a picture of the two to put it in the salsa can. The whole world buys Timon and Pumbaa's salsa and Timon and Pumbaa make a lot of money.
Timon and Pumbaa get on a plane to go to a talk show called "Ropa Live." Pumbaa feels nervous that he and Timon are going to be on TV because he's afraid that he might tell the secret recipe. Timon tells the warthog that Ropa will not ask them what their salsa is made of.
Timon and Pumbaa are now on "Ropa Live." After Ropa takes a bite of their salsa, Pumbaa feels really nervous and then he reveals the secret recipe. Because of that, Timon and Pumbaa lose their fame and money.
Timon gets angry at Pumbaa for telling the secret recipe. Pumbaa feels guilty and tells Timon that keeping the secret recipe secret was not very easy. Timon then decides that Pumbaa trying his best counts and that they still got each other and their salsa. Pumbaa tells his friend that he hid the chips in his secret hiding place that no one else knows about. The two then see the animals eating the chips, meaning that they know about Pumbaa's secret hiding place.
It is revealed from Pumbaa that Timon's middle name is Leslie.
