In addition to its world-class resorts & amenities, burgeoning golf scene, panoramic vistas and unrelenting charm, the City of La Paz now owns bragging rights to another very large victory. In November, employees from 54 local La Paz restaurants and 3,000 volunteers used more than two tons of flour, 250 liters of milk, 400 kilos of tomatoes, 40 large onions, 300 chiles, 200 kilos of salt and three tons of minced fish to create the world’s largest burrito.
Lined up along the Malecon, it took workers 15 hours – and a reported two years of planning – to prepare the 5.7-ton burrito. After Adjudicator Ralph Hannah from Guinness World Records formally pronounced La Paz the owner of the world’s largest burrito, it was cut into 27,000 pieces and shared by all in attendance.
