So my 10 year old tells me that the boys in her class dared all of the girls in the class to eat one of these super-hot, super-spicy tortilla chips:


All the girls tried the chips. And most choked or gagged saying they were too hot.

My daughter takes pride in telling me that she said, “Oh yeah, well I’m Mexican so watch this.”

And then she downed three chips without blinking an eye.

While she’s not quite ready for the hottest of the chili peppers (which she watches her grandmother easily devour), I think my husband’s side of the family would be proud.
