LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) _ This weekend's Kansas Relays will include
a different kind of competition.
While track and field events go on around Memorial Stadium
Saturday, the food vendor for Kansas Athletics will be trying to
build a world-record nacho plate.
Rick Brown, general manager of Centerplate, says the goal is to
build a nacho plate that is 80 feet long, 3 feet wide and 4,600
pounds. That will require 1,200 pounds of beans, 860 pounds of
beef, 860 pounds of nacho cheese and 600 pounds of tortilla chips.
The Lawrence Journal-World reports the current record is a 3,999
plate built by a Massachusetts restaurant in October.
A state official will monitor the safety of the food, which will
be served from noon to 2:30 p.m. Saturday.
