A Quick Overview Of How To Say Burritos
In Spanish, a ‘burro’ is a donkey, and a ‘burrito’ is a ‘little donkey’, so the translation of ‘burritos’ is ‘little donkeys’. The simplest way to describe this Mexican dish is that it’s a wrap made with a flour tortilla wrapped around a filling – the filling can vary, but traditionally can include frijoles refritos, meat, guacamole or whatever else. It makes an easy, portable hand-held snack. In Mexico, burritos are also called ‘tacos de harina’ – flour tortillas. Tortillas are traditionally made with corn-meal.
Remember: In Italian, ‘burro’ means ‘butter’, not donkey. Confusing the two can lead to all kinds of misunderstandings!
