Mexican dish consisting of a wheat flour tortilla wrapped or folded into a cylindrical shape to completely enclose the filling

A burrito is a traditional Mexican dish. It is based on a tortilla filled with foods such as meat, beans or cheese. In the United States, however, there are usually several ingredients. They use foods such as Mexican rice, beans, lettuce, salsa (ex. pico de gaillo), meat (ex. carne asada), avocado, cheese, and sour cream.
