Today’s recipe is of one of our favorite Mexican dishes- Burrito. There are different ways of making a Burrito and you can bring so many variations just by changing the filling and sauces.
I am sharing a delicious vegan version – Bean rice and mushroom Burrito.
Burrito is a delicious Mexican dish in which flour tortilla is filled with different ingredients mainly bean, rice, meat, sauces, and then sealed into a roll.
It tastes great, is very filling and can be eaten at any time of the day, be it for breakfast, lunch, dinner or just a snack.
Do you know how Burrito got its name? Burrito means ‘little donkey’ in Spanish and it’s said that this dish is called Burrito because it’s filled with a lot of ingredients just the way a donkey carries a lot of things.
As per another folklore, a man by the name Juan Méndez used to sell tacos in Mexico during the period of the Mexican revolution. This man’s mode of transport was a donkey. To keep his food warm he used to wrap them in large homemade flour tortillas. That’s how this dish wrapped in a large flour tortilla sold by a man traveling on his donkey got it’s name Burrito.
I love reading such folklores behind different dishes, or rituals.
This Mexican treat is a must-try dish and is very easy to make.
