A Look Through Time

The origins of the burrito are a bit unclear. However, one theory is that the burrito originated in the border town of Ciudad Juarez during the Mexican Revolution. This was when a man named Juan Méndez began selling tacos to hungry soldiers. Méndez began wrapping the tacos in large flour tortillas to keep the food warm and easy to carry. The word "burrito" is sometimes said to come from the Spanish word "burro" or "little donkey." This was because the shape of the rolled-up tortilla resembled a donkey's ear.

Burritos Today

Nowadays, you can find burritos all over the world, but some of the best ones are still found in Mexico. In fact, there's even a "Burrito Capital of the World" - Juarez, Mexico. The burritos there are famous for being huge, and locals love to challenge each other to see who can eat the most.   But whether you're in Juarez or just your local taqueria, there's no denying the joy that comes from biting into a warm, freshly-made burrito. The combination of rice, beans, meat, and veggies wrapped in a soft tortilla is nothing short of magical.

They’re Also Versatile

One of the best things about burritos is their versatility. You can fill them with pretty much anything you like. The possibilities are endless, from traditional beef or chicken to vegetarian options like black beans, tofu, or roasted vegetables. You can also add your favorite toppings, such as guacamole, salsa, sour cream, or cheese, to make it truly your own.
