I was the kind of high-school student that loved having a lot of different jobs. It was to save money for college, of course, but also to keep busy in my free time. I worked at the local Dairy Queen (and learned how to make perfect milkshakes), spent my summers as a camp counselor, and worked the counter at a taco shop. I was in charge of taking orders, serving customers, packing food up for delivery, and assembling three of the restaurant’s most popular items: tacos, salads, and burritos. Because of this experience, I learned how to fold a burrito perfectly—a skill I’m still proud of to this day.
For this burrito folding tutorial, I prepped our breakfast burrito recipe, which is full of all kinds of deliciousness. Once you have the filling of your burrito ready, here’s how to properly stuff and how to fold a burrito so you can have the cleanest burrito-eating experience ever.
One mistake people easily make with burritos is filing the entire surface of tortilla with filling. In order for the burrito to fold well (without having any filling fall out the sides), you want to push all of the filling to the bottom half of the burrito shell. This will make for a much easier folding (and eating) experience.
Using both hands, fold in the sides of the burrito shell, which will make a vertical rectangle shape.
Use your thumbs to fold the bottom of the burrito shell (the side with the filling) over to the middle of the burrito shell.
