A burrito is a flour tortilla with filling like rice, cheese, sour cream, beans, lettuce, salsa, meat, guacamole, and vegetables. In Mexico, it’s traditionally much simpler, containing meat and beans. Burritos are carefully wrapped up and completely close around their filling. The outer flour tortilla is often lightly grilled or steamed to make it soft and keep it closed when wrapped.
The burrito has expanded into many different versions. The American breakfast burrito contains scrambled eggs, potatoes, cheese, sausage or ham wrapped up in a flour tortilla. A wet burrito (sometimes called smothered) is covered with a red or green chili sauce and melted cheese.
How about a chimichanga? This is a simply a deep-fried burrito and popular in Southwestern and Tex-Mex cuisines. And there’s the burrito bowl made of burrito fillings, minus the tortilla.
