    I've seen lettuce in both which is complete heresy.

    Burrito is an American invention - make it any way you want.

    Personal opinion, fill it with what you like. Balancing the portions of each ingredient is the magic.

    No, it isn’t
    “The Diccionario de Mexicanismos has an entry for the burrito as early as 1895. The entry states that a burrito is "A rolled tortilla with meat or other ingredients inside, called 'coçito' in Yucatán and 'taco' in the city of Cuernavaca and in Mexico City." There is some suggestion that burritos are a war food, brought into America during the Mexican/American strife of the early 1900s. There is very little documentation of the burrito's early days.”

    Dude, I am from South Dakota where corn is for ethanol not tortillas. Hell, Taco Bell had to introduce the Bell Beefer (taco on a bun) to ease us into Mexican fare.

    Restaurant two blocks away from our old house in PDX made tortillas on site. Big round grill, little wooden press. Old lady (from Guerrero) would be out there every morning starting at 0700 for the lunch crowd and back at 1400 for the dinner shift. Would buy them from her fresh off the grill 12 for $3.00 - i miss her...

    No, it is a very liquid batter. Mix well, ladle up some in a pan like a crape, flip. A corn shell but warm and soft.

    LOVE some soft wheat shells but I go to GDL for that, old lady has been pressing them for years at a local place I hit ever time in town.

    So true. In the 90's I worked in Marina del Rey and the taco truck that came by in the morning would mix up the breakfast burritos like witchcraft. And the Mariscos Guillen truck was just around the corner for lunch. That was a great place to work.

    That’s confusing - a burrito also known as a taco...

    This https://www.thedailymeal.com/eat/11-...deshow/slide-2
    Sez it was invented in California in 1930s
    But they are likely referring to the huge ones we see nowadays.

    Regardless, the epistemology of tacos, burritos, flautas and enchiladas is messy, but yummy.

    Homemade Tacos: Hard or Soft??

    What’s with most gringos and flour tortillas? Where did they come from? I’ve never see Hispanics eating them. Why don’t Americans prefer corn? They’re so much tastier.

    Anyway, place here in town...awesome. A pound of fresh tortillas for $1.25.

    Word.

    My taco, in order of volume, wrapped in a soft corn, of course:

    Fresh pico, a little protien, frijoles negros perhaps, touch of guac, lots of lime, mmmmmmm!!!!!!

    Americans is kind of vague. In most of the West corn tortillas dominate and they won’t even have any other option at most taco trucks.
