Chef David Cetina set out to make the largest taco ever, not only entering the Guiness World Record but also feeding thousands from the same taco. If that’s not crazy, I don’t know what is.
They used 1,200 kilos of marinated and then roasted pork, wrapped in banana leaf to preserve the authentic flavor of “cochinita pibil”. Two hundred people worked for almost a week to create the 1.6 miles taco, using almost 80,000 lbs of tortillas (that’s 44,000 tortillas). All those tortillas required a huge amount of sauce. 661lbs to be exact, which is probably more than you’ll ever eat in your lifetime. It all went down in Guadalajara during the “Jalisco International Festival of Flavors”.
And here’s Chef David Cetina at work, making a taco that would later feed 5000 people.
