Guinness World Record Taco Rice Recipe: Photo Essay

Making World Record Taco Rice is a community effort. You could do what I'm showing in photos on a much smaller scale. Cover your coffee table with plastic wrap and have some friends pitch-in for a Super Bowl Party, maybe. You won't break any Guinness Records but, you won't go hungry either!

The exact measurements you won't get here for a couple of reasons.
1. Somebody will try and break Kin Village's Guinness World Record, for sure. Even if ya waterboard me, I ain't talkin'. I live here.

2. My ears hear things about as well as a rock so, when the speakers blared out "Kilos" I thought they were talking about "Helos" like Mr. Guinness, or somebody was gonna land in a helicopter.

This isn't exactly a Betty Crocker (She still around?) recipe; just estimate how many friends you have coming over and throw in as many kilos as you think it takes and maybe add a few more. Just look at my visual recipe and add the ingredients to suit your taste.

Steamed rice is the first layer. You probably could get by using a putty knife instead of a paddle.

Cover the rice with your favorite blend of meat and  taco sauce. Trowel it over nice and smooth.

Load the next layer up with shredded cheese. Kinda like lasanga but cheddar works best, I think.

Pile on the shredded lettuce and spread it around to cover all the cheese. You could get away without wearing a mask if everyone promises not to sneeze. Hats and cameras are optional.

Fresh tomato slices top the whole thing off. It's ready to eat. You could have the whole thing done before the Super Bowl Pre-Game finishes and enough left after the Super Bowl Party to feed the cleanup crew.

My pleasure, but, I wouldn't exactly call it a recipe; more of a teaser/appetizer !
Probably 6-7 times a week, I walk around the corner and grab Taco Rice for lunch. It's lots more fun when somebody else makes it !
Someday, you have to give us a recipe for Orangeslpaash; sounds exotic !

Now, lunchtime! :)

A and Y Ikeda,
Old dude, not exactly sure how to do it but, check my homepage and links. Let me know if that does the trick, OK?
If you hit Contact Me on the Homepage, I'll get your email address and we can chat, too. Can't be too safe, nowadays, ya know.

Cheers, Mike

Hi Mike,
Thank you for participating in "Show Me Japan".
This is a great post and I did not know Japanese making a Guinness world record Taro Rice!
Judging from the size of first layer of rice, I thought that next layer of meat would be a grilled cow (entire body). Then roll the cow up with outer layer and put it in your mouth!!!
Thanks for sharing and have a wonderful weekend.

Hah, I like that idea. Roll a whole cow up inside a shell and go for the Guinness World Record for a Beef and Bean Buritto. I'll have to wait 'til Monday to run down to the City Office and ask them to fill out a Guinness application !
