Woman’s ‘criminal’ way of eating burrito sparks heated debate: ‘Jail’

One woman’s wild way of eating a burrito has sparked a raging debate online, with people calling her technique a “crime.”

A picture of a half-eaten dish was shared by mainstem_branchus on Reddit’s mildly infuriating forum on Sunday, where it garnered nearly 20,000 upvotes.

Her partner wrote in the post, “My wife eats her burritos stuffed with a fork, then eats the empty tortilla shell.”

A burrito is a Mexican staple, consisting of tacos, quesadillas, fajitas, and enchiladas.

The essence of the classic dish is given by Old El Paso, who said: “The burrito is a soft, warm tortilla that is wrapped around rice, beans and a variety of juicy fillings, including chicken, beef or pork. The name ‘burrito’ translates to ‘ Little donkey’ because the folded end of the tortilla looks like a donkey’s ear!

“Traditionally, Mexican burritos would include meat and refried beans, while in the US they offered a combination of additional ingredients, including rice, salsa, beans, lettuce and meat.”

Whatever fills you go for, it’s widely accepted that the burrito is the perfect ergonomic shape for eating out of your hands, making it ideal for street food or a grab-and-go snack, because No cutlery is required.

This is why this woman’s fork feeding method has divided opinion online and sparked much debate, with some horrified by the method, while others are ready to give it a try.

Auberginecassio thought: “I do this. Idk why. It’s just… less messy. And the tortilla is great afterward. It’s a tortilla with the essence of a burrito.”

Saltytapeworm admitted: “It is to be honest to God that one of the strangest things I have seen another human do.”

Theguywiththeface11 said: “Definitely weird. It looks like a chipotle burrito, so I’ll let her argument slip… she’s definitely saving herself a mess, and with a bowl of a side tortilla.” Don’t have to pay extra for it.”

C8h1On4Otwo claimed: “But it really is the best way to eat a burrito.”

Cinesi added: “I’m pretty sure you can go to jail for this.”

Hi_i_am_steve joked: “Call the burrito police. We have a barricade.”

Slowasaspeedingsloth commented: “Thank you for making me feel less embarrassed because I… totally would.”

AlbatrossSenior7107 Theory: “I can really appreciate that. I love the tortilla with all the residue from the meat and toppings. It’s like sauce. And I love eating the inside with chips.”

W3h45j asked: “Why not just get a bowl at that time? Or you know, nachos?”

OKwhy10 said: “It’s a crime.”

While Dwbarry60 asked: “Did you know about this before marriage?

To which Mainstem_bronchus replied: “It was not brought to my attention!”

Thursday, April 7, was National Burrito Day, designed to celebrate the popular dish, which is now enjoyed around the world. According to the website National Today, the cuisine was first served in restaurants in California, USA, in the 1930s.

“Burritos have changed over time. American burritos have multiple ingredients, while Mexican burritos are simply filled with meat and beans,” the site said.

But there seems to be more debate about how the humble dish should be eaten.

The site continued: “The Mexican dish is a national favorite, and everyone likes their burrito in a certain way—beans, or meat, with salsa, cheese, lettuce, sour cream, and vegetables. It’s debated whether Whether or not the rice is in the burrito (we’ll let you choose your side of the argument).”
