The competition will feature 10 professional eaters, including Joey Chestnut, Nick Wehry, and Eric “Badlands” Booker, ranked first, fourth, and 27th respectively. All 10 competitors hope to set a new world record by becoming the World Burrito Eating Champion and winning the $10,000 prize.
The burrito features grilled adobo chicken, cilantro lime rice, black beans, 3-cheese queso, roasted tomato salsa, and guacamole. Competitors will have to consume as many burritos as possible in a 10-minute window.
“Eating competition focus solely on quantity of food consumed, and while that remains the goal, we wanted to ensure our quality food was center stage by creating a flavor-forward burrito that both professional eaters and fans would love,” says Katy Velazquez, Executive Chef at QDOBA.
QDOBA’s World Eating Championship Burrito will be available between Apr. 6-21, 2023 through online or in-app ordering.
