What are burritos

Burritos are tortillas filled with meat (typically chicken, beef or pork), a layer of Mexican rice and/or beans (either refried or black beans), veggies such as lettuce and tomatoes, and finally toppings such as cheese, salsa, guacamole, sour cream and jalapeños. Meat can be substituted with ingredients such as spicy jackfruit or beans to create vegan alternatives.

What's the difference between a burrito and a taco?

The key differences between tacos and burritos are in their size, quantity and how they’re served. Tacos are small and served open. You’ll likely need 3 or 4 to satisfy your appetite. A burrito, on the other hand, uses a larger tortilla, is usually served wrapped, and one can be enough to fill a hungry stomach.

What kind of tortilla do you use for a burrito?

Burritos are best made with a flour tortilla as a corn one would break with that size of tortilla.

What do you serve with burritos?

We think chips and salsa are a must, or take it up a notch with nachos! Mexican rice and refried beans are also typical sides. We think a side of Mexican corn is also a delicious accompaniment.

Can you freeze burritos?

Yes! Just roll them tightly in aluminium foil, place them in a freezer bag and then into the freezer. It's as simple as that! The best way to defrost them is to thaw them in the fridge the night before and then, when you wish to eat them, microwave for no more than 2 minutes. This will warm them but prevent them from being soggy. They can remain in the freezer for up to 3 months.

What's in burritos?

Like most of the cuisine in Mexico, burritos really vary in fillings and size depending on the region. You will find burritos with crispy fish and cabbage in Baja, breakfast burritos with eggs and Mexican chorizo in Mexico City, and smothered in red enchilada sauce in Sonora.
