One Illegal Pete's burrito is generally more than enough for most folks, but competitive eater Joey Chestnut managed to pack in 14.5 of the foil-wrapped bombs in ten minutes as he took the $5,000 grand prize at the Denver Outlaws World Burrito Eating Championship on Saturday, May 28. The event took place after a lacrosse match between the Outlaws and the Boston Cannons. Chestnut's feat was his second burrito victory in two years, and the Outlaws also bested their opponent, bringing their record to 2-3 on the season. Brandon Marshall was there for all the lacrosse and the gluttony. For more photos, see our complete slideshow.
