Burritos!

easy burrito recipe

This month’s free sample is a delicious blend for spicing up burritos, a true family favourite. Literally translated as ‘little donkey’, some say the burrito got its name because the tortillas filled with spiced meat and refried beans resemble the rolled packs often carried by donkeys. Delicious, portable and easy to eat on the go, they quickly spread from Mexico to the US where rice, salsa and other ingredients were added, making the burrito a more substantial meal.
