This popular Mexican dish has a great variety of fillings. Burrito is the most popular Mexican fast food, so it’s a must-eat for any traveler.
The basic feature and the invariable component of burritos is tortilla, either made of corn or maize. The other ingredients are a matter of individual taste, as burrito fillings can vary from meat, fish or mushrooms to fruits. Sure, burrito with meat, mostly chicken, is the most popular variant in Mexico.
To cook this dish, they take ready-made tortillas and add a filling inside, for example, grilled minced meat, tomatoes, avocado, beans, or rice. They usually top the filling with sour cream or salsa with chili peppers. Finally, they fold the tortilla into a roll and warm it up before serving.
Like all the dishes of that kind, burritos are available in any street cafe of Mexico.
