Burrito

A burrito is called a taco de harina in Mexico.

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, and the size varies, with many burritos considerably larger than their Mexican counterparts.

El burrito o taco de harina es un platillo de la cocina mexicana que consiste en una tortilla de harina de trigo enrollada en forma cilíndrica en la que se rellena de carne asada y frijoles refritos.

En contraste, un taco es generalmente formado al doblar una tortilla a la mitad alrededor de la carne, dejando el perímetro semicircular abierto. Esto último describe la versión estadounidense (Tex-Mex) de taco; en México, el taco se hace siempre enrollando la tortilla alrededor del relleno, mismo que puede ser prácticamente de cualquier alimento o guiso.

The American burrito as we know it today likely got its start in Los Angeles in California, where it was on the menu as early as the 1920s at the legendary El Cholo, then known as the Sonora Cafe.
