Mexican cooks have rustled up a 53-metre long sandwich during the annual 'Torta' festival in Mexico City.

More than 300 people helped to make the monster, which includes meat, chicken, avocado, mole (Mexican spicy sauce), turkey, tomatoes, beans, ham, shrimps, octopus and different types of cheese.

More than 50 cooks from Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela, Chile and Argentina were present to build the 700kg whopper 'torta'. A torta is a type of sandwich popular in Mexican cuisine, and can be stuffed with egg, sausage, ham, steak, or cheese (and octopus, apparently).

Officials estimate that more than 350,000 people will visit the fair over the next five days. About 600,000 tortas will be sold during the event.
