10 Burrito Recipes You'll Want To Make Right Now

Though no one would ever question the ultimate Mexican origins of the burrito, there is no doubt that the burrito we know and love today is a heavily Americanized creation.

Burritos have taken on a life of their own in the U.S., crossing cultural boundaries and becoming one of the most popular foods in America. And what's not to love? They can be tailored to fit nearly any preference, are insanely delicious, delightfully cheesy, and are a good option for those on a budget.

Although chain locations like Chipotle and the hundreds of Mexican (or shall we say Mexican-adjacent for authenticity purposes) restaurants can roll up a tasty burrito in mere minutes, you can, of course, try your hand at making them at home.

Burritos are suitable for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Check out this roundup of our 10 best burrito recipes, featuring classic recipe favorites and some burrito combinations that may surprise you.
