A burrito (also known as a tortilla wrap) is a Mexican or Tex-Mex dish consisting of a flour tortilla wrapped around various ingredients and sealed in a cylindrical shape. Often, the tortilla is grilled or steamed to soften it and make it more pliable.
A burrito may be eaten as it is or it may be drenched in a savory sauce. Generally, a burrito is served in a bowl with a layer of rice at the bottom.
