Eat A 30-Pound Burrito, Own Part Of A New York City Restaurant

Don Chingon will give you a 10 percent stake in the Brooklyn taqueria if you can polish off the monster meal.

Ever wanted to own a restaurant? Just polish off a giant burrito at a New York taqueria and you’ll attain your dream.

Don Chingon recently issued a challenge to customers: Eat a behemoth burrito and gulp down a margarita in one hour or less, and you’ll win a 10 percent stake in the Brooklyn taqueria.

"If you are going to eat a massive amount of food in a single sitting, you deserve real compensation," owner Victor Robey told the NY Daily News. "Some restaurants will put your name on the wall. We'll give you the wall."

But The Grand Chingon Challenge is no easy feat. The burrito weighs 30 pounds and is stuffed with steak, chicken, pork, rice, cheese, beans and salsa. And the margarita? It's made with an extremely spicy ghost pepper.

This is what a 30-pound burrito looks like -- before I eat 30 pounds of it!

Customers have to pay $150 to participate in the challenge, and once they start, no bathroom breaks are allowed.

Puking will also result in disqualification.

The restaurant adds that it will not be responsible for “death or illness” caused by the enormous meal.

And by the way, I have to eat this ghost pepper margarita after. #ScovilleMe!

NY Daily News reporter Gersh Kuntzman recently tried The Grand Chingon Challenge for himself.

“When this Mexican mound was placed in front of me, it looked like a large toddler -- or a small coffin,” Kuntzman said of the humongous burrito.

The reporter ended up consuming less than 4 pounds of the meal.
