The longest taco in the world was made at an event held in the historical square of the city of Cuernavaca, the capital of the Mexican state of Morelos. A 70.4-meter-long taco, prepared by hundreds of people, including many restaurant operators and gastronomy students, broke the Guinness World Record as the longest taco in the world. Thirty-seven kilograms of corn flour were used for the tortilla.
“First of all, we need to prepare a 70-meter-long tortilla without it falling apart. We can say that this is the hardest part of making the longest taco in the world,” said Cuernavaca City Human Development and Social Inclusion Secretary Laura Patricia Hernandez in her speech before the event started.
Cuernavaca Mayor Jose Luis Salgado congratulated his city for breaking the record and said, “This success has been achieved by the efforts of those who worked here with discipline and great love today.”
The city had previously broken the longest taco record with a 56-meter-long one.
