Photo: Kansas Community Breaks Guinness World Record for Largest Serving of Nachos
At 80-feet long, the world’s largest serving of nachos was created in Lawrence, Kansas.
Weighing in at a staggering 4,689 pounds, the Lawrence world record attempt was officially given the Guinness World Record for Largest Serving of Nachos.
Centerplate, Salty Iguana, KU Athletics and Lawrence Interdenominational Nutrition Kitchen (L.I.N.K.) collaborated to prepare the massive amount of nachos, which were 80 feet long, three feet wide and more than 10 inches deep.
Organizers started building the plate of nachos at 10 a.m. on Saturday, and volunteers say that long after the nachos were completed and had cooled, people were still paying the $1 donation to eat the record-breaking nachos.
Food and a number of the volunteers were donated by the Salty Iguana restaurant. In the end, a total of 860 pounds of nacho cheese topped off with 200 pounds of Salty Iguana’s famous Iguana Dip, 600 pounds of fresh salsa, tomatoes and cilantro, 860 pounds of beef, 1,200 pounds of beans, 315 pounds of jalapenos and 600 pounds of tortilla chips were used to make the nachos.
Proceeds from the event went to L.I.N.K. and organizers said it was not just about breaking a world record. It was about wanting the Lawrence community to be in the limelight. They say so many people in the community work hard to help those in need and in return deserve to be rewarded.
