The main difference between Enchilada and Burrito is that the Enchilada is a corn tortilla rolled around a filling and covered with a chili pepper sauce and Burrito is a Mexican food consisting of a wheat flour tortilla wrapped or folded into a cylindrical shape to completely enclose the filling.
An enchilada (, Spanish: [entʃiˈlaða]) is a corn tortilla rolled around a filling and covered with a chili pepper sauce. Enchiladas can be filled with a variety of ingredients, including various meats, cheese, beans, potatoes, vegetables or combinations.
A burrito (English: , Spanish: [buˈrito] ( listen)) is a dish in Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine that consists of a large wheat tortilla with various other ingredients. It is wrapped into a closed-ended cylinder that can be picked up, in contrast to a taco, where the tortilla is simply folded around the fillings. The tortilla is sometimes lightly grilled or steamed to soften it, make it more pliable, and allow it to adhere to itself when wrapped. A wet burrito, however, is covered in sauce and therefore cannot be picked up.
In Mexico, meat and refried beans are frequently the only fillings. In the United States, however, burrito fillings may include a large combination of ingredients such as Mexican-style rice or plain rice, boiled beans or refried beans, lettuce, salsa, meat, guacamole, cheese, sour cream and various vegetables. Burrito sizes vary greatly and some can be very large.
