Thanks bro, I always make the best burrito's (at home) and it's probably one of my favorite foods, but I never had now idea how to wrap them sun of a guns!! until now.... Thanks to you dude!! Now I can call myself a "Proffesional" Home Burrito Specialist. Greetings from Ruben all the way overseas from Holland...

Posted by: Ruben JD at February 19, 2003 07:56 AM

Thanks for the burrito fold! I'm going to try it for making burritos for lunch!

Posted by: Mark at February 21, 2003 09:07 AM

You are my hero!!! We are making burritos at home tonight in Dallas. As I watched my wife wrapping them, I thought "now that is definately wrong". I've known a couple people in my life that could really wrap burritos, but a long distance phone call just seemed silly. Since everything seems to be on the web now-a-days, I figured a google search was worth a try.

Posted by: John & Kim at February 21, 2003 07:14 PM

I've seen lots dumber things on line. Besides, if I wasn't dumb myself I wouldn't need instructions for folding burritos.

Posted by: Pat at March 24, 2003 04:29 PM

Thanks Bill, your eloquant "how to" article has changed my life.

SummaBitch...Foldin a fuggin burrito...

Posted by: SummaBitch at May 5, 2003 08:12 PM

So I know how to fold them now, and thats great, but where can I find out how to make what goes inside?

Posted by: Dane-O at May 8, 2003 09:16 AM

When I eat Taco Bell burritos, I open the burrito to squirt hot sauce inside. Thank you for showing me the "correct" method for re-assembly.

Posted by: Robert Tilley at May 19, 2003 10:33 AM

Wow, that's very educational and useful, how the internet should be...
Now I'm hungry....

Posted by: Lydia at May 22, 2003 07:15 PM

i just wasted a perfectly good 30 seconds on reading that why i did it? i blame it on the weed......

Posted by: blahkid at June 15, 2003 02:26 AM

A great tip - I'm in the middle of cooking and realized I may not be using the best technique (see why you aren't dumb?)so I hopped on line...=) However, I'm hoping to freeze them to take for lunches and I'm thinking leaving one end open may not work for me - plus how do you get it to stay closed???

Thank U! Thank U! Thank U! Thank U! Don't mind those jerks who are dissing your site. If they did not want info on burritos, how would they have gotten to your site in the 1st place. Since u r such an expert, when will you show us how to make different fillings???? Looking forward 2 it.

Damn, dude! Wrapping a burrito correctly is one of the top ten things a person should know in life.

Posted by: lawanda at July 1, 2003 06:10 AM

Very cool. I never knew there was such a method to rolling a burrito. And by the way "Debbie", eating a taco is not gay. Eating sausage is gay, but eating a taco is very hetero. ;)

Posted by: TheRedHeadBoy at July 17, 2003 02:35 PM

I think this is one of the best things I've found online yet. Don't let those negative ppl get to you...altho I don't think they could :D you seem to have it well together. Keep on keepin' on.

Ok, I first typed into google "how to roll a burrito" luck. Then I typed in "how to WRAP a burrito" and this site came up. YOU my friend are a good person for going to the trouble of illustrating the technique. I am indebted to you forever. :)

Oh suuure, it's easy to describe when you've got pictures! ;)

I bow to you, burrito master. Your kung fu is truly superior.

Seňor Burrito Wrapper,

Your mastery of this art and willingness to share it with others online has given me the strength and courage I need to show my Mexican neighbors that this whity Hombré can throw-down Mexican style with the best of them.

Mucho Gracias

Posted by: at October 17, 2003 04:56 AM

Wow, I cant believe Im saying this online but I work at Taco Bell. Ive never been quite able to wrap a burrito...thank you!

Posted by: Rebecca at October 19, 2003 10:52 PM

I am still trying to figure out how to wrap a burrito so that its contents bulge and stretch the tortilla to its limits, like the cylinder-shaped burritos that are served at Q-Doba and Chipotle.

Posted by: IIooII at November 7, 2003 11:50 AM

Easy... big tortilla & a big pile of ingredients!

Posted by: Bill at November 7, 2003 12:06 PM

Thanks for the prompt reply Bill. Shortly after posting my first message, I went to a Q-Doba just to observe how the burritos are wrapped there, and I learned that the bulging effect that I desire results not just from the quantity of ingredients, but also from some clever squeezing and kneading done during key moments of the wrapping process. I think I figured out how they do it, and I am eager to go home and try it myself.

Posted by: IIooII at November 7, 2003 04:25 PM

That's great, thanks for the tip. Do you have any idea how they make that cream sauce that goes in the fish tacos???

Posted by: Wooly at November 8, 2003 08:33 PM

We thank you for giveing away our secrets .. now can we have them back .. there are going to be to many people start copying us !!!

but, put the filling in the middle a lot more
and before the finishing fold, flod the other side!

I am eating my burrito now, and I packed one for my husband's lunch tomorrow too. I still need a little practice, but thanks for that fold-over tip.

Posted by: Kirsten at December 29, 2003 09:36 PM

This was great I look for everything on the internet and this was right on the money. Shit I needed to know how to and you showed me exactly how. PERFECT! GREAT IDEA!

Posted by: Kizze at December 30, 2003 10:28 PM

Man, I have been bitching about this for YEARS! People don't know how to make proper burritos! Particularly in the South.

This has made me a very bitter man.

I'm just glad to know that I'm not alone any longer. The world needed this.

Thank you, sir.

Posted by: aidan at December 31, 2003 04:14 PM

my comment to you is thank you for making my day. you know, i had a dream about a burrito once, since then, i have been a fanatik. they krak me up.can you come up withanything else?

Posted by: gezzika at January 7, 2004 08:10 PM

I am now a productive well adjusted person and a model citezen thanks to your humanitarian crusade to spread the art of burrito making to the unenlightened masses. I am confident that if I only knew whether to heat the tortilla first (like the package says) or not (because i was not expressly ordered to on this site and I am THAT sort of idiot) that they would let me out of the asylum.

Posted by: agonia at January 15, 2004 06:48 PM

Indeed, you should heat your tortilla... the best way to do that (short of a restaraunt-style tortilla steamer) is to heat them on a flat, griddle-like surface. Avoid the microwave at ALL COSTS!

Posted by: Bill at January 15, 2004 07:14 PM

Man, you have no idea how helpful this is!!!!!!!

If you're finding that "you cant make it tight," that's because you're not trying hard enough. My wrapping skillz are beyond compare... I can wrap a burrito so tight yer sister will be jealous! ;-)

Posted by: Bill Grady at February 24, 2004 10:20 AM

This is awesome, thanks so much! Now I can wrap my burritos at home right! YOU ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!

Posted by: Rory at February 25, 2004 05:12 PM

I went looking for "How to fold a burrito" and got to your site. Seems there's nothing one can't find, anymore, but I'm not complaining. Good info and well presented, thanks.
Now, if only I could find an answer to "How does a fajita differ from a burrito?"

Posted by: Larry at March 2, 2004 12:38 AM

Thanks for the extra step I knew I was missing something. I think I love burritos as much as you? I have never used SPAM but am not againsted the idea. Anything my wife cooks goes into a burritoe. From Mashed Potatoes and Broccoli, to Spagheti!!! Maybe I'll try Spam, cheese, and potatoes burritos for lunch? Thanks for the ideas.


Posted by: jerimiah at March 7, 2004 02:17 PM

Thank you. Iam making my husband breakfast befor he hits the road out of town on business. Now he won't have to stop at MC D. in the morning. Liked that ya included pictures along with text. Some are visual learners!

Posted by: Tanya at March 10, 2004 05:31 PM

Simple, but true!

Additionally, the best way to heat up the 12 in. tortillas at home is to purchase a terra cotta "Grande Tortilla Warmer/Steamer" (cost $30-$32 on-line)and heat in the oven -- works every time!!!

Muchas gracias!
