It was on August 29, 2004 at the Nevada
State Fair in Reno that the longest burrito to date was built. The burrito
measured 8,076 feet long, just under 27 football fields. Before this the record
was a burrito that measured 8,000 feet long and built in Cuba, New Mexico in 2001.
The burrito took two hours and 160 volunteers to
build. The burrito consisted of 8,200 flour tortillas, 2,000 pounds of refried
beans, one thousand pounds of cheese, one thousand pounds of sour cream and one
thousand pounds of salsa. Wal-Mart, Safeway, Model Dairy, BakeMark, Costco, El
Rosa Mexican Food Products, B&C Builders Supply, and Krispy Kreme were just a
few of the businesses that donated burrito fixin’s and building supplies (for
the table to hold it), and snacks for the volunteers.
The community event was an assembly of people
placing plates, scooping beans, sprinkling cheese, and spreading salsa. Another
team folded the burrito parts as it was finished, making sure that the flour
tortillas touched the one adjacent to it to make it one long burrito!
