What does burrito mean?
Technically, burrito means “little donkey.” Some believe that the dish is named this because it can hold a lot of different things (ingredients) while also remaining relatively small. This is similar to how donkeys (burros) can carry many things and are relatively small animals.
Who invented the burrito?
The burrito has roots in Mexico though nobody is quite sure when it was officially invented and who invented it.
How do you reheat a burrito?
We recommend reheating your burrito in a 350 degree F oven for 15 mins. Make sure to wrap it in foil before you reheat it.
What is the difference between a burrito and a chimichanga?
Chimichangas are typically much smaller in diameter than burritos. Additionally, burritos have closed ends, while chimichangas are open-ended and contain fewer ingredients than burritos. Also, chimichangas are usually deep-fried.
Where was the burrito invented?
The Diccionario de Mexicanismos has an entry for the burrito in 1895. The listing states that burritos are "A rolled tortilla with meat or other ingredients inside, called 'coçito' in Yucatán and 'taco' in the city of Cuernavaca and in Mexico City." Some believe that burritos are a war food brought into the US during the Mexican/American conflict in the early 1900s. However, there is very little documentation of the burrito's creation.
