Lawrence, KS - The world record for the biggest plate of nachos was nearly 4,000 pounds. An 80-foot plate of nachos weighing 4,689 pounds served at the Kansas Relays smashed that record.

Centerplate, Salty Iguana, Kansas University Athletics and Lawrence Interdenominational Nutrition Kitchen (L.I.N.K.) collaborated to prepare the massive amount of nachos.

Again, the plate was 80 feet long, three feet wide and more than 10 inches deep.

Judges from the Guinness World Records flew in from New York to observe the production and serving process of the nachos. The nachos, excess and packaging weighed 5,002.6 pounds in total. To make an accurate decision, judges deducted the weight of the packaging and excess remnants, which was 313.6 pounds. The grand total was 4,689 pounds of pure nachos.

Philip Robertson, official adjudicator for the Guinness World Records, said Saturday was the fifth attempt of the record for the largest nacho serving since June 2002. The previous record holder belonged to 99 restaurants in Billerica, Mass.. The restaurants collaboratively served 3,999 pounds of nachos in October 2011.
