MEXICO - World's largest enchilada made in Mexico

MEXICO CITY, -- Officials in a Mexico City said 600 residents made it into the Guinness Book of World Records by creating the world's largest enchilada.

Guinness officials said the Iztapalapa borough's enchilada, measuring 230 feet, 12 inches in diameter, beat earlier attempts elsewhere in the country and in the United States, La Jornada reported Monday.

The enchilada, which was worked on by 600 locals, weighed in at 1,032 pounds and included massive amounts of corn dough, chicken, cheese, onions, Serrano peppers, tomatoes and other ingredients.

Mexico City Tourism Minister Alejandro Rojas said the enchilada was created to bring attention to the borough as part of an effort to boost tourism.
