What's cooking at The Homestead...
Fun fact: "Burrito" means little donkey in spanish.
Why, exactly, did this famous dish get that as its name? There are many stories as to how the name burrito came about, but there doesn't seem to be evidence to back any of them.
Regardless of where the name came from, these little (and by little we mean not-at-all-little) delicious tortilla pockets of food are immensely popular and super versatile.
These days, what fills them often crosses cultural boundaries, like our own Chicken Adobo Burrito, which is filled with Filipino style adobo local chicken, garlic fried rice, tomato, onion, and cilantro, served with black beans, guacamole, pico, and shredded lettuce.
So, while we may not know where such an odd name came from, we do know that you can't go wrong when you order a burrito!
