Macayo's made a 125-foot burrito in 32 minutes

PHOENIX - Talk about a mega burrito.

A team of more than a dozen people built a 125-foot burrito at last weekend's Cinco de Mayo Festival in downtown Phoenix.

So, how long did it take? 32 minutes. The team started at 3 p.m. and finished at 3:32 p.m., according to Ashley Negron, marketing manager for Macayo's Mexican Restaurants.

Here is how the grocery list broke down:

  • 400 tortillas
  • 240 ounces of Mexican rice
  • 50 pounds of black beans
  • 80 pounds of shredded chicken
  • 60 ounces of Baja sauce
  • 48 ounces of Jack cheese
  • Three gallons of enchilada sauce
  • 64 ounces of pico de gallo

The burrito was then cut into samples and sold for $1 each.
