Burrito is one of the most popular Mexican cuisine outside of Mexico. And its name burrito literally means “little donkey” in Spanish, coming from burro, which means “donkey”. It consists of a flour tortilla wrapped or folded around a filling. The flour tortilla is usually lightly grilled or steamed, to soften it and make it more pliable. In Mexico, refried beans, Mexican rice, or meat are usually the only fillings and the tortilla is smaller in size. In the United States, however, fillings generally include a combination of ingredients such as Mexican rice, beans, lettuce, salsa, meat, avocado, cheese, and sour cream.
So whether you are in Mexico or in any part of the world, be sure to try out this delicious food that you are sure to love!
