GUADALAJARA, Mexico, Feb. 17 (UPI) -- A group of 130 people lead by a team of chefs assembled a line of tacos stretching nearly two miles in a Guinness World Record attempt.

The group in Guadalajara put together the uninterrupted line of tacos using 2,645 pounds of pork.


The 9,047.24-foot-long line of tacos was constructed from ingredients from the state of Yucatan and the tasty tortilla treats were distributed to hungry onlookers after organizers collected the data they needed to submit to Guinness.

The attempt took about 6 hours.

Organizers said they are waiting to hear back from the record keeping organization.

A group in Mexico previously broke the world record for the largest flour taco in 2003 when they assembled a 35.9-foot-long taco that weighed in at 1,654 pounds.
