Breakfast Burrito

The breakfast burrito is said to have originated in Santa Fe, New Mexico, in the mid-1970s. It wasn’t long after that McDonald’s introduced their version and made the dish a national hit. The dish may have evolved from the breakfast tacos, which were popular in Austin, Texas, but the breakfast burrito’s forefather is the Mexican burrito, which was invented in the early 20th century in Sonora, Mexico.
