WIKI NOTE:  The word burrito means "little donkey" in Spanish. The name burrito as applied to the dish possibly derives from the appearance of bedrolls that donkeys carried.

The difference between a Burrito and a Taco is basically the shape. So a Burrito is a wheat flour tortilla wrapped or folded into a cylindrical shape to completely enclose the filling in contrast to a Taco, which is generally formed by simply folding a tortilla in half around a filling, leaving the semicircular perimeter open.

8 soft flour tortillas
REFRIED BEANS FILLING (approx. 4 units)
2 cups of drained red beans (approx. 400g)

NOTE: If you don´t find Mexican cheese, you can use any kind of grated cheese.
1/4 red onion, to taste
3 tablespoons of vegetable oil
A pinch of salt
Chili chipotle sauce (optional)
NOTE:  The tortillas have to be soft, because it will be easy to blend them and make the rabbit hears.

NOTE: Mix the refried beans with grated cheese to make a spreadable paste for the filling.
5. Fold the tortilla into a cylindrical shape to completely enclose the filling. Cut in the middle the top of the tortilla. Cut the top of the burrito without filling in half to make rabbit ears.
