About Burrito

Burritos are a typical Mexican food. This dish consists of a wheat tortilla filled with various kinds of meat such as beef, chicken or pork. These cooked meats are usually the sole filling, and then rolled in the tortilla. In the United States, the contents of burritos are more varied, such as rice, kidney beans, cabbage, tomatoes, salsa sauce, guacamole, cheese and sour cream --- this causes the size of the burrito to be larger. Wheat tortillas are usually grilled or lightly warmed to make them softer and easier to roll. The word burrito, in Spanish, means "little donkey". This name was probably given because the shape of the ends of the rolled-up wheat tortillas is similar to the ears of a donkey. Or maybe a burrito is similar to the bags that donkeys usually carry in South America.
