Mexico City: Mexico City has a new world record — the world’s largest enchilada.
Residents of Iztapalapa, in the eastern part of Mexico City, cooked up a 70-meter-long, one and a half-ton enchilada on October 17, after hours of preparation.
An enchilada is a traditional Mexican dish made with fried tortillas rolled up and stuffed with cheese, then covered with salsa and cream.
Guinness record official Ralph Hannah announced that it was the world’s biggest, and a new Guinness record.
The colossal concoction was made of 75 kgs of corn, 273 kgs of white onion, 122 kgs of serranos chilies, 150 kgs of cheese, 150 liters of cream, avocado and a sea of salsas, among other ingredients.
Mexico City has gone for a number of world records recently, including the largest number of people dancing to Michael Jackson’s “Thriller,” and the most people kissing simultaneously.
