Burritos are tortilla wraps folded into a cylindrical shape and filled with tasty ingredients, the filling completely enclosed. In Mexico they’re often filled with refried beans or meat, then served as a handy takeaway snack. However since migrating to the US, other versions have appeared. Stuffed with a combination of other ingredients from spicy rice to salsa to salad, they’re often served larger than snack sized, becoming a meal in themselves. A big burrito stuffed full of chilli beef, rice, salad and salsa can easily defeat the hungriest Tex-Mex lover!
A classic Mexican takeaway dish is fajitas. They are typically made with grilled strips of skirt steak with onions and bell peppers, and served sizzling hot with fresh tortillas, guacamole, sour cream, and salsa. You can make fajitas with steak or chicken, or even make it plain vegetarian. This sizzling dish makes the most delicious takeaway.
