Keep in mind the Chupacabra is a mythical wild beast that is rumored to be a wild killer. This beast's burrito-cousin consists of a killer two foot long, eight pound burrito filled with beef, chicken, lettuce, tomatoes, cheese, rice, beans and hot sauce and finished off with sour cream, guacamole and pico de gallo. There's no time limit to finish but once you start you aren't allowed to stop.

The prize is actually amazing: a free meal every week for the rest of your life.
