It is generally believed that the burrito originated in Mexico, and that the Pueblo peoples of the southwestern United States prepared what is known as the modern burrito. There are many regional variations of the burrito, with different fillings and some served with sauces. I prefer the simple black bean burrito without rice or meat.
