So, this may just be a result of my own ignorance, but what differentiates a burrito from a fajita? Is it the contents? Is it the folding versus rolling approach to securing said contents? Because if it just comes down to how the thing is closed, fajitas are, in my opinion, stupid. If it's something else, well then I'll just say that I think the folding approach is inferior to rolling. With rolling, everything stays in a nice handy pouch. With folding, crap's falling out, you gotta tilt your head to eat it, I mean come on.

So do you fold or roll? And what's the difference between a fajita and a burrito. Or taco, for that matter.

I'm not sure what the difference is, other than a Fajita is generally brought to you in sizzling disarray and you put it all together yourself.

Also, does anyone find it coincidental that Burrito means "Little Burro" in spanish??

Good point, Homercidal. That's another point against fajitas. If I'm paying somebody to cook my food, I feel like assembling the final product should be their responsibility.

Not much different, other than the way it is wrapped. The contents are usually different, but there are fajita burritos that are basically the same.

Point of interest, while we're on the subject of translating mexican food names, a "gordita" can be interpreted as "little fat girl". Whether or not they contain the meat from a chubby female child is a matter of debate.

Wow, I've never felt so dirty about having eaten a few gorditas in my time.

you guys are all smoking crack if you think fajita = burrito.

Fajita is grilled meat in a soft tortilla with grilled onions and peppers....to which is sour cream, salsa, guac. is added.

Burrito is meat (varies) rice, beans, and the above-mentioned condiments, wrapped up in a soft tortilla.

So what happens if I add rice and beans to a fajita? Because at lunch, I added rice and beans to my fajita. I think it was meant to be a side, but it was not.

Wait. What? Now I'm confused. Head. Is. Spinning. The burrito is the world's most perfect food. And this thread kicks a$$.

its a fajita with rice and beans...duh...

Go any farther and you risk making a tear in the space/time continuum. Don't say I didn't warn you.

I just didn't know if my rice/beans addition would be cause for a day of mourning in the hispanic community.
