Mexico City has set a new world record for the world's largest enchilada. The record was achieved in the municipality of Iztapalapa, in the eastern part of the Mexican capital, after hours of preparation.

Guinness World Records said the record breaking enchilada was 230 feet long and weighed 3,144 pounds.

The colossal concoction was filled with 165 pounds of corn, 602 pounds of white onion, 269 pounds of serrano chilis, 331 pounds of cheese and 33 gallons of cream.

The head chef said everything was prepared in Iztapalapa and nothing was brought pre-made.

An enchilada is a traditional Mexican dish that is made with fried tortillas rolled up and stuffed with cheese, covered with salsa and cream.
