How to build and roll the perfect burrito


Burritos are delectable – but can be a sloppy mess. But this 4-minute video from The Daily Meal takes you by the hand and shows you how to build the perfect burrito – one that doesn’t get soggy or fall apart. There are several keys:

  • The order of ingredients is truly important – beans, rice, shredded cheese, meat/vegetable, salsa, guacamole, sour cream, hot sauce.
  • The ratio of ingredients is key, especially rice to bean – about even. And not too much guacamole.
  • The desired shape is a rectangular, elongated form.
  • Rolling is a four-step process: in with the sides, over the top using your fingers to insure coverage, corners in, and tucked under itself (not really a roll) – and take your time.

Now this is an art form everyone should – and can – learn.
