Who invented the burrito?

Asked by kheredia (5558points) March 21st, 2010

Some say its Mexican, some say it’s not. I’ve never had or even seen a burrito in Mexico but who knows, maybe it’s from a small town in the middle of no where. I’ve also heard its a tejano dish. So what do you think? Mexican or not? Tejano or not? American maybe?? Any other ideas?

It’s an American adaptation of a Mexican dish (the taco). They are not rare in Mexico, by the way.

How the burrito guy didn’t get the Nobel Peace Prize is beyond me.

Burritos were made in the 16th century by Ciudad Juárez.

@Myname- Uh, I don’t know how to break this to you but Ciudad Juárez is a city, not a person.
