Did you know?
Although it is still unknown what the true origins of the burrito dish are, one popular theory is that a man named Juan Mendez from Mexico had a food cart hitched to a donkey. In order to keep his food warm, Juan would wrap the ingredients in flour tortillas. The food was soon popularized during the Mexican Revolution for it’s convenience and simplicity. Even though we may never know the true origins of the burrito, we do know that Janeva’s naked burrito casserole recipe is simple and delicious!
