Delicious Mexican Burrito
"Mexican Burrito is one of the most popular Mexican foods in the United States. Burrito is a Spanish term that means “little donkey.” However, donkey meat was never a popular ingredient in this famous dish. The history of burrito and how it got its name is quite interesting to consider. There are so many stories about how the burrito name came to be — but these are just stories and there is only limited evidence backing them. The burrito’s first appearance was in the 1900s where it was sold from a donkey cart during the Mexican revolution. This quick and easy food item quickly became popular."
NotesBe sure to drain off any excess moisture from the pork mixture before folding it into the tortillas. Soggy tortillas are the worst. Then you’re filling break out of the burrito when you bite into it.
