A Massachusetts restaurant was certified by Guinness World Records as creating the World's Largest Nachos after preparing a 3,999-pound serving.
The Ninety Nine Restaurant in Billerica said the nachos, placed atop a 70-foot, horseshoe-shaped table, started with 1,105 pounds of chips Saturday and teams followed with 825 pounds of Monterey jack and cheddar cheeses, 439 pounds of cheese sauce, 451 pounds of salsa, 459 pounds of chili, 199 pounds of jalapeno peppers, 90 pounds of diced red onion, 421 pounds of sour cream, and 8 pounds of chopped cilantro, WCVB-TV, Boston, reported Monday.
A Guinness representative was on hand during the attempt and certified the restaurant as beating the previous record of 3,555 pounds, set in Frisco, Texas, in April 2010.
"Ninety Nine Restaurants is now a part of Guinness World Records history and we couldn't be more thrilled," Ninety Nine Restaurants President John Grady said. "We've listened to our guests who have requested that nachos come back to our menu and this was a fantastic way to re-introduce them while also showcasing the ingredients we use daily to make our crave-worthy food at the Ninety Nine."
