Breakfast Burrito with Bacon and Potato

A burrito is basically a filled tortilla rolled up in a specific way. Burritos can be enjoyed for lunch, dinner, as a snack, or even for breakfast, depending on the filling you decide to use. This dish consists of a wheat flour tortilla which is folded or wrapped around a filling. A burrito completely encloses the filling, unlike a tortilla which is served flat or in a U-shape with the filling exposed. You can see how this recipe is really filling and tasty, and how burritos can make a very flavorful and satisfying evening meal, perhaps accompanied by one or two sides.

The tortilla is typically steamed or lightly grilled to make it soft, and meat with refried beans is the usual filling in Mexico although burrito recipes vary widely in the United States. You can find Mexican rice or plain rice in burritos here, along with lettuce, beans or refried beans, salsa, guacamole, cheese, sour cream, and meat. Burrito is Spanish for ‘little donkey’ and one explanation for the name is how a burrito looks a bit like the bedrolls and packs donkeys used to carry.

The Mesoamericans in Mexico used tortillas to wrap foods like avocado, squash, mushrooms, chilies, and tomatoes, before the modern burrito was developed. The Puebla people in the Southwest US would fill tortillas with meat and beans, and the modern style of burrito is actually not all that different. The tortilla is the vehicle for the filling. This snack is a traditional food in Ciudad Juárez, Chihuahua, where roadside stands and restaurants do a roaring trade. Villa Ahumada and other Northern Mexican towns are also famous for burritos.
