Minnesota man attempts to eat only Chipotle burritos for a week straight

This week Jeremy Baier is facing the kind of challenge that you can never truly prepare for. It will test his strength or character, his motivation, and his digestive system. It has been dubbed the Great American Burrito Challenge: From January 24 through January 30 he will consume three Chipotle burritos each day. That's 21 total. The caloric intake promises to be astronomical; the challenge's Twitter page estimates that by the end of the week he will have consumed 23,940 calories (12,600-15,400 is the recommended weekly range for men with moderate body fat).

But he's not doing it to fill an insatiable hunger, he is doing it to raise money for the Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota.

Cholula Embraces The Smokey Chipotle.

For those of you that are long time Cholula fans, The Smokey Chipotle has discovered a new addition to the family:

Cholula Chipotle Hot Sauce...featuring a savory blend of Cholula's original "Flavorful Fire" and the smoky and slightly sweet flavor notes or real Chipotle peppers. It brings sensational new flavor to soups, ranch dressing, steaks, chicken and more.

Ingredients: Water, vinegar (white and apple), sugar, peppers (chipotle, guajillo, arbol and piquin), salt, natural flavors, spices, xanthan gum, silicon dioxide, citric acid and caramel.

Silicon dioxide
? Really, is that necessary? Perhaps it is carried into the formula in the powdered chile ingredients.
