Whether we call it a burrito or a wrap, or even a roll - there's no denying its popularity all over the world. Crispy veggies are paired with meat and drizzled with an array of sauces and then layered inside a wholesome flatbread. The best thing about wraps and burritos is that they can be prepared quickly, are a complete meal and can be eaten on the go. But when preparing burritos at home, we often contemplate how exactly it can be wrapped without the filling falling out. Well, the search for the right technique ends here! This viral video shows the best way to roll out a neat and tidy burrito with all the fillings completely intact. Take a look:
The video was originally posted by an account called 'escribano' and then reposted by user Vala Afshar. "This is the best way to roll out a burrito," he wrote in the caption. In a short span of time, the tweet has gone viral and received over 7.5 million views and nearly 5k likes.
In the 17-second-long clip, we can see a burrito wrap with the fillings layered on top. Instead of wrapping it up the usual way, the video instructs us to first fold it slightly in from the top and the bottom. Then, while holding those edges intact, the right edge of the burrito is brought towards the left. Now, the semi-circular burrito is simply rolled till it forms a cylinder. Thus, the burrito stays intact and none of the fillings would fall out either!
This simple trick to roll a burrito won plenty of reactions on the internet. Many thought that this technique could be applied to many other rolls and wraps as well. "Life skills they don't teach you in school," wrote one user while another laughed, "I'm only concerned with the fastest way to consume a burrito!"
