About 35 years ago some Marine buddies and I held our own jalapeno contest. This was in Yuma, Arizona, so it was appropriate. We gathered at this great restaurant named Chretin's. They had names on the walls for those eating the most nachos covered in jalapenos. I lost. But I think I ate the equivalent of 5 or 6 whole peppers guzzling beer with them. The next morning was epic in it's discomfort.
