The latest food item to enter the Guinness Book of Records is an enchilada stretching to an amazing 230 feet long in length and weighs nearly a ton and a half.
On Sunday, the people of the Iztapalapa neighborhood on the eastern side of Mexico City spent hours making the enchilada at the National Enchilada Festival.
Guinness official, Ralph Hannah, said the enchilada, made of 75 kgs of corn, 273 kgs of white onion, 122 kgs of serranos chilies, 150 kgs of cheese, 150 litres of cream, avocado and a sea of salsas, is the largest enchilada ever made and now holds the official Guinness title.
“With this Guinness record we are showing the world that Iztapalapa is a high-level tourist destination,” said Mexico City tourism secretary Alejandro Rojas.
Mexico City has been attempting a number of world records recently, including the most people kissing simultaneously, and the largest number of people performing the “Thriller” dance to the Michael Jackson song.
