NEW YORK, Oct. 13 (UPI) -- A New York restaurant is offering patrons the chance to win 10 percent ownership of the eatery if they can finish a 30-pound burrito and a ghost pepper margarita.

Don Chingon, which opened its doors in Brooklyn's Park Slope neighborhood in August, said "The Grand Chingon Challenge" asks customers to down a 30-pound burrito composed of steak, chicken, pork, rice, beans and salsa.


Customers taking on the challenge must also drink a margarita spiked with ghost pepper.

The restaurant said the challenge costs $150 to take on, and customers must finish the meal within one hour and they will be disqualified if they discharge any bodily fluids -- which means no bathroom breaks or runny eyes and noses from the spicy beverage.

The restaurant -- which will not accept responsibility for any injuries or deaths resulting from the challenge -- said successful participants will earn 10 percent ownership of the eatery.

Don Chingon said all participants will receive free T-shirts "regardless of performance during the challenge."

The challenge officially begins Oct. 19, with a few "sneak peaks" before then, the restaurant said in a Facebook post.
