The recipe for a record-breaking guacamole? 25,000 avocados and 1,000 people to mash them.

That is what avocado growers in Mexico's Jalisco state mobilized on Sunday to break the world record for the biggest guacamole, a whopping 3 tons (6,600lbs) of delicious dip made from "green gold."

The mass mash-up was part entertainment and part politicking, as growers and Mexico make the point that they — and the guacamole loving Americans — have benefited from the North American Free Trade Agreement that is now under threat from US President Donald Trump.

Some 80 per cent of US avocado consumption comes from Mexico's growing expanse of orchards. Jalisco has become the second biggest producer of the Hass variety in Mexico behind Michoacan state, according to producers.

More than 600 student chefs and 400 people from the rural town of Concepcion de Buenos Aires prepared the traditional dish for thousands people, many of whom came from the Jalisco state capital of Guadalajara.

The state's governor was on hand to receive recognition from a representative of the Guinness Book of World Records.
