Burrito Challenge

The purpose of this article is to serve as a general strategy guide with tips and advice that you should follow when attempting to win a burrito eating challenge. There are many different varieties of burrito eating challenges all around the world, and they come in all shapes and sizes. Some are served “dry” which means that all the burrito filling ingredients are wrapped inside of the tortilla(s) and there are no sauces or cheeses added on top. Others are served “wet” which means the burrito is smothered with various sauces, cheeses, and other “wet” (moist) toppings. The typical meats used are chicken, beef, pork, or steak, but you will see shrimp and other meats available to choose from every now and then as well. Most burritos do include rice, cheese, beans, and various peppers, lettuce, and other vegetables. They also typically feature salsa, sour cream, guacamole, and/or other sauces and toppings. Every now and then a burrito challenge will include a side of nacho chips, and you may encounter extra spicy burrito challenges too. One restaurant may have a six pound burrito and another may have a four or eight pound burrito. You may even find a challenge where you have to eat two or three smaller burritos too. Even though there are many different variations that you may encounter, the basic strategy needed remains similar for every variation. Before we go into the specific strategy details for winning a burrito eating challenge, please make sure you have read and understand our Basic Strategy For Winning A Food Challenge article. It’s full of 14 different strategy tips that won’t be included in this article, which you need to understand before attempting a burrito eating challenge. Please start off by watching our very informative How To Win A Burrito Challenge video so that you can visually see all of our different tips put into practice during an actual burrito eating challenge. For this video, I attempted The 7lb Burrito Challenge at El Mariachi Mexican Grill in Ionia, Michigan. During this challenge, I had to finish a seven pound wet burrito with three different meats in less than 45 minutes. Winners get their meal free, a shirt, and their name/photo posted on the Wall Of Fame.
