IZTAPALAPA, MX (NBC) - An enormous enchilada in Mexico failed to break the record for world's largest.

Mexican chefs Thursday at the National Enchilada Fair in a Mexico City suburb prepared an enormous enchilada weighing one ton.

But despite being 278 feet long, it didn't make it into the record books.

The chefs had already achieved a Guinness World Record in 2010 with a 230 foot long enchilada, which weighed almost 1.5 tons.

Aside from the enormous enchilada, the National Enchilada Fair also features hundreds of enchilada recipes from all over Mexico.

Organizers say 300,000 people are expected to visit this year's Enchilada Festival.
