Legend has it that the burrito was invented around 1900 in the Chihuahua region of Mexico by Juan Mendez. Burrito translated means “little donkey” and refers to Juan’s much-loved donkey who helped him deliver the burritos.
In our beef burrito recipe, we have cooked beef brisket and chuck steak, low and slow until meltingly tender, which makes a delicious filling. Probably the best thing about burritos is their versatility so go ahead and add your favourite toppings.
