Not for breakfast though.

But I do agree smothered burritos are a thing and are also amazing.

That looks amazing. I just don’t know if I’d call it a breakfast burrito.

No, it is. The usual suspects go inside. Chile smothered on top.

I should add that New Mexico is largely considered the birthplace of the breakfast burrito.

Not McDonalds? 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

It's a trip that people think handheld breaky burritos are the norm. I guess in places like Idaho and Wisconsin, they are. 🤷🏻

No, hand held breakfast burritos are the norm, in your normal household. Especially in NM. In our households, anyway. I'm a 4-5 generation Hispanic -on both sides- in NM and I've never seen anyone break out the knives and forks on a breakfast burrito.

Yeah I'm from there too. Surname has been there since the 1600s. So, you eat your smothered burritos with your hands? Word.

No, I'm saying we don't smother our burritos, we -my family, friends- stuff whatever we have inside. I'm not saying it's wrong, I've eaten some with a knife and fork, it's just something I never see besides a restaurant.

I'm not trying to gatekeep, it's just not the norm, in my part of the state, anyway. You eat your burrito anyway you want, there's no right way or wrong way.

Not saying handheld isn't normal. Just that smothered is too since people think I'm talking crazy or something. 🤷🏻


oliverkloezoff t1_j69iyi9 wrote

Nah, you're talking crazy 😁. I believe you, not where I'm from, though. But then again I don't speak for all NM (ok, maybe I was trying to) or for the rest of the country, so I shouldn't have said anything, maybe I was gatekeeping. But, I still think you're talking crazy 🤪.

To me, McDonald's is absolutely the answer lol it was definitely my first breakfast burrito experience!


I-AM-Savannah t1_j69nk6n wrote

Mine as well, and still my only breakfast burrito experience. None of the restaurants around here (that I know of) have breakfast burritos.

Suuuuuper easy to make your own! Eggs, hashbrowns, sausage/bacon, salsa... standard base. My favorite spot around here does a tikka masala breakfast burrito that is enormous & delicious. There's basically no wrong way to do one as long as it tastes good.

I don’t know why you’re getting downvoted for this, unless you just edited Wikipedia to prove yourself right

I think it’s because it feels just a little bit like cultural appropriation.

Pairing tortillas with breakfast foods has been going on in Latin America for a long time. Seems odd to claim “inventing” putting the food in the tortilla.

That's where the breakfast burrito was invented ffs


Raeandray t1_j6dmq6a wrote

Ya I’ve heard that. Seems kind of odd to say considering Latin and South America have been pairing tortillas with breakfast foods for centuries.

As someone from New Mexico, yeah it’s breakfast. We eat breakfast burritos 24/7 out here though, but that’s because they’re delicious. Smothered in red, green, Christmas, or bone dry.
