Vending Machine That Dispenses Burritos

A burrito, also known as a taco de harina, is a type of Mexican-American food. It consists of a wheat flour tortilla wrapped or folded into a cylindrical shape to completely enclose the filling. The flour tortilla is usually lightly grilled, to soften it and make it more pliable. In Mexico, meat and refried beans are sometimes the only fillings.

In the US, burrito fillings generally include a combination of ingredients such as Mexican-style rice or plain rice, refried beans or beans, lettuce, salsa, meat, guacamole, cheese, and sour cream, and the size varies. Typically, American-style burritos are stuffed with more ingredients than the primary meat and/or vegetable filling.

The word burrito can be translated to “little donkey” in Spanish, as a diminutive form of burro, or “donkey”. The name burrito as applied to the food item possibly derives from the appearance of bedrolls and packs that donkeys carried.

Before the development of the modern burrito, the Mesoamerican peoples of Mexico used tortillas to wrap foods, with fillings of chili peppers, tomatoes, mushrooms, squash, and avocados. The Pueblo people of the Southwestern United States also made tortillas with beans and meat sauce fillings prepared much like the modern burrito.

The precise origin of the modern burrito is not known. It may have originated with vaqueros in northern Mexico in the nineteenth century; farm workers in the fields of California’s Central Valley, in Fresno and Stockton; or with northern Sonoran miners of the 19th century.
