National Burrito Day [RECIPES]

NATIONAL BURRITO DAY
National Burrito Day is observed annually on the first Thursday in April.
A burrito is a heavy tortilla wrapped around meat, cheese, tomato, rice, beans, vegetables, and sauces. Burritos can be filled with ground beef, shredded chicken, shredded beef or shredded pork. Bean choices often include black, red, whole or refried beans. Vegetables can be grilled or fresh. Cumin, chili powder, and oregano are typical spices used to give the burritos an authentic Mexican flavor. Chimichangas are burritos that have been deep fried.
The word burrito first appeared in the Dictionary of Mexicanisms in 1895. It is the term used in the Guanajuato region and means little donkey in Spanish. It is possible that it stems from the appearance of the packs and bedrolls donkeys used to carry. In other regions of Mexico, similar types of food are known as flauta. The burrito was introduced in the United States in the 1930s at the El Cholo Spanish Cafe in Los Angeles.
