A man caught trying to enter the US illegally was detained over the weekend. The man was found in an odd and very hot hiding place — in a shipment of red chile peppers.

According to¬†Huff Post, the 35-year-old Mexican national was face down in the chile shipment with a bottle of tequila in hand. US Customs and Border Protection officials say that man was “highly intoxicated.”

He was hoping to catch a ride to Chicago, but only made it 100 yards into New Mexico before his discovery at the customs checkpoint. The man will be sent back to Mexico and the chiles were free to continue their journey to spicing up America.
