    Mexican seeks world chili eating record

    For most people, even the smallest bite of a raw chili pepper means a flushed face and a rush for a gulp of water. But Manuel Quiroz, 54-year-old Mexico City taxi driver, can guzzle down dozens of Mexico's spiciest chilies, rub them on his skin and even squeeze their juice into his eyes without so much as blinking.

    Chilies don't sting me. They don't affect me. It's just like eating fruit," Quiroz said at a market in the Mexican capital. Shoppers stared in amazement as he crunched on a habanero, the hottest chili pepper in a country that likes its food spicy.

    Quiroz said he plans to try to get his abilities recognized by Guinness World Records. To his knowledge, no one in the world can swallow more chilies.

    "Chilies are the pride of Mexico," Quiroz said. "The world chili-eating champion has got to be here." "I'm the best. No one can rival me." :flame:

    My record is 4 Scotch Bonnets (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scotch_bonnet) the red variety finely chopped up and raw, on 2 heaped table spoons... I'm good with chillies... My arse was on fire the next morning, that's for sure, but I knew it would be.

    Mind you, I couldn't do it any day. I work in a restaurant where the chefs like teasing us with these chilli pranks. They used to wind me up telling me that my workmate ate more chillies than me the other day. That would make me chilli hungry and I had to beat that.

    But they always lied about that. Some days I couldn't even eat one scotch bonnet. Other days I'd have two without even breaking sweat. When I ate those 4 nice ones, I had horrible shakes and cold sweats for about an hour, had to drink about 2l of milk... And my poo wasn't very nice next day lol. But I'm the record holder @ my workplace and that will stand forever now, until some lunatic beats me.

    BTW, I can't do Tabasco, can't stand the taste of it.

    jalapenos are not really that hot tho... but eating 65 of them, that's a good effort...
