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.

I’m not exactly sure where the first burrito was made or who made it but I do know they were a genius

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.
