On April 4 the nation celebrates the burrito: a joyous coming together of corn tortillas and a variety of different fillings and sides that showcases the best cuisine of northern Mexico and the southwest United States.

The appeal of the burrito lies in the flexibility of the form. It can be filled with almost any kind of meat—apart from perhaps donkey from which the much beloved food stuff takes its name—and a huge range of vegetables, chilli peppers and other fillings.

Typically burritos contain fillings of minced beef, shredded chicken, beef or pork, grilled or fresh vegetables and black or red beans either whole or refried.

A delicacy of infinite variety, the burrito is all things to all people: To the vegetarian it is the veggie burrito, to the crusty west coast surfer it is the California burrito, to the hungover bro it is the breakfast burrito. Throw down your forks! The burrito asks no questions—the burrito takes us all—just as we are.
