The Chile Verde That Broke My Belly

Like the legendary piece of straw that buckled the camel's spine, so too is this chile verde plate. For weeks, Anna's MIT location was feeding (ha!) my addiction for a breakfast that'll wake you up in the morning.

I know, I know. This doesn't look like breakfast food. And the MIT location has breakfast burritos. I am responsible for my own fate.

Sometimes you learn when to say enough is enough. This experience taught me the hard way. No less delicious, this chile verde was considerably more spicy than usual. My stomach was considerably less cooperative.

I gotta say it wasn't the chile verde's fault. It was the quart of milk I drank with the meal. Soothing qualities of guacamole and refried beans proved inadequate in quelling the mouth fire.

Perhaps men with high burn tolerances like Nick or Shane would have fared better. Plus I'm a lactard.
