Manuel Quiroz, a 54-year-old taxi driver from Mexico City, sure can eat chili. Heck, he can even rub the spiciest of chilis on his skin and even squeeze their juice into his eyes without so much as blinking!
"Chilies don't sting me. They don't affect me. It's just like eating fruit," Quiroz said at a market in the Mexican capital. Shoppers stared in amazement as he crunched on a habanero, the hottest chili pepper in a country that likes its food spicy.
