National Burrito Day celebrates the savory tortilla-wrapped dish. The burrito and the concept of wrapping food in tortillas can be traced back to 10,000 BC to the Mesoamerican people of Mexico. The tortilla can be filled with meats, vegetables, cheese, and other ingredients like rice and beans. Burritos are known to be one of the most popular Mexican cuisines around the world. This day encourages everyone to enjoy the dish.
