Did You Know. . .

that according to the Guiness Book of World Records, the world's largest enchilada was made in Mexico City.  Here is a clip.  It was 230 feet long and weighed almost 3,144 pounds.  It was created during the National Enchilada Fair held at Iztapalapa, and it consisted of corn tortillas, serrano chilies, onions, tomatoes, cheese, salsa, avovado and cream in addition to other ingredients. 

However the people of Las Cruces feel like their's is the largest because their enchilada is rolled and not flat like the one made in Iztapalapa.  Check out the dispute here.  You can also view them making it here
