A burrito is a type of tortilla. It is wrapped around shredded meat, cheese, rice, beans, vegetables, and sauces. The vegetables can either be used fresh or grilled. Burritos are highly spicy to give them an authentic Mexican flavor. As a way to commemorate burritos as a culinary fiesta, the National Burrito Day is observed on the first Thursday of April.

History of National Burrito Day

No one knows the origin of National Burrito Day. However, burritos as a treat have a rich history.

The word burrito first appeared in Mexico in 1895. The word referred to a little donkey in Spanish and was used in the Guanajuato region of Mexico. The term burrito was adopted due to the tortilla’s similar appearance to the packs carried by donkeys in that area. In other regions of Mexico, burritos are referred to as flauta.

Ancient Mexicans would make tortillas and fill them with beans and vegetables as early as the 16th century. For a long time, burritos remained an authentic Mexican treat only available in Mexico. Burritos were however introduced in the US in the 1930s. The first restaurant to serve this tortilla in the US was El Cholo Spanish Cafe in Los Angeles. In 1956, the first frozen burrito was made in Southern California.

Contrary to the US burritos, Mexican burritos are thin with only a maximum of two ingredients, the most popular being beans and meat. On the other hand, the Americans make big burritos and fill them with a variety of ingredients among them meat, sauce, cheese, and vegetables.
