Burritos side dish and serving ideas



Burritos are a popular Tex-Mex dish of rice, beans and usually meat, wrapped in a tortilla. They first came to the US in the early 1900’s and were a simple combination of refried beans and meat; nowadays the burrito is more akin to a meal wrapped in a tortilla.

One of the most popular styles of burritos is the Mission burrito, which was first made popular in San Francisco and is now mostly commonly sold in chains such as Chipotle and Qdoba. The Mission burrito is noted for it’s large size, the inclusion of extra ingredients and for being served wrapped in a piece of foil. Among other popular kinds of burritos is the wet burrito, which is covered in a sauce. There is also the California burrito that includes potatoes in the filling and of course the breakfast burrito which is primarily stuffed with eggs, sausage or bacon, cheese and sometimes potatoes.
