Taco vs. Burrito

By Jaxson

Main Difference

The main difference between Taco and Burrito is that the Taco is a traditional Mexican dish consisting of a corn or wheat tortilla folded or rolled around a filling and Burrito is a Mexican food consisting of a wheat flour tortilla wrapped or folded into a cylindrical shape to completely enclose the filling.

  • Taco

    A taco (, UK also , Spanish: [ˈtako]) is a traditional Mexican dish consisting of a corn or wheat tortilla folded or rolled around a filling. A taco can be made with a variety of fillings, including beef, pork, chicken, seafood, vegetables, and cheese, allowing great versatility and variety. Tacos are generally eaten without utensils, often garnished with salsa, chili pepper, avocado, guacamole, cilantro (coriander), tomatoes, onions, and lettuce.

  • Burrito

    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.
