Yesterday afternoon, Dexter Holland's Gringo Bandito hot sauce hosted a taco throwdown challenge at Fred's Mexican Café in downtown Huntington Beach. Competitive eaters chowed down on stacks and stacks of tacos for a $5,000 prize--the occasion also marked competitive-eating legend Takeru Kobayashi 's return to American competitions.
