Burritos have the feeling of a “snack” to them even when prepared into a meal as explained above. Hence are a favorite for any mealtime as well age groups. Children love them and feeding them to children for breakfast will ensure they get the adequate supply of nutrition they need to start their day off the right and healthy way.

Much like other well-rounded recipes they also have the added benefit of being able to accommodate almost any ingredient that you may find under the sun. A pro-vegan diet or a meat or chicken based version is just easy to prepare and the presentation of it all makes it just as visually appealing favoring the finger-licking, lip smacking taste.


All the above taken into consideration, burritos need close attention when preparing and even though are pretty much the same to prepare no matter what the ingredients are, you need to prepare some parts separately. Hence preparing it is pretty much simple but can be overwhelming for a first timer.

On top of this, burritos have a tendency to be heavy for digestion, which is obvious by the number of the ingredients and the fact that they are nutritious. That makes them a bit difficult to sustain for children as a breakfast meal but will definitely give them everything they need to start their day right.

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do burritos come from?

Mexico, primarily. But they are generally considered a tex-mex recipe.

Are tacos and burritos the same thing?

For the most part. The main difference is the fact that a taco is half open forming a boat like shape and the burrito is folded completely into a roll.

Are burritos primarily meant for breakfast?

No, they’re not. But the tradition of eating them in breakfast comes from America where they are used as a whole meal easy for eating while on commuting.

Should burritos be frozen?

No. That’s the one word answer. And it should be stuck to. Because any amount of reheating or thawing will likely damage the tortilla used to wrap the fillings because of the sauces already present and the water content that will undoubtedly be released by ingredients such as the meat or sour cream. Specific this recipe, the eggs will not last either so freezing should be avoided at all costs.
