Tancítaro, Michoacán, Mexico - Less than a year after avocado growers in Jalisco broke the world record for the biggest guacamole, with a whopping 3 tonnes (6,600 lbs) of delicious dip made from "green gold," a new Guinness World Record has been set in Mexico's top avocado-growing state.
A guacamole weighing 3,788 kilograms (8,351 lbs) was recently created in the Tancítaro municipality of Michoacán, reclaiming the record taken in September by Jalisco.
The record-breaking guac was made during the 2018 Tancítaro Expo Fair, with some 500 people working on different production lines for the avocados, onions, tomatoes, cilantro, chiles and lime juice. The team, made up mainly of volunteers, took around five hours to finish their creation. Of the total volume, 70% was made up of avocados, 15% of tomatoes and 10% of onion.
Local public notary Antonio Álvarez Isais, was present to confirm the guacamole had been prepared under Guinness World Record rules.
Michoacán is the leading avocado producing state with around 140,000 hectares, and Jalisco takes second place with 23,000 hectares.Source: La Voz De Michoacan
