    I went to a restaurant called Las Iguanas in Liverpool had had a delicious burrito. Plenty of meat, just the right amount of sour cream and guacamole. It was nice and large too. There's also an outlet of Barburrito near there and they do a pretty decent burrito that you can customise to your liking.

    Love both of those places! Have you tried the new one in town yet? (Mexigo, IIRC) I think it's partly owned by the people who run Savina, which is also brilliant. It's like a fast food Savina.

    Haven't tried it yet though.
    No I haven't... Is that the place on Bold St?

    Aye that's the one. It looks pretty decent and menu seems good... never popped in though.

    There is a place in Edinburgh called Illegal Jacks which is tasty enough

    Tacos too!

    I was going to mention them, nice people. Opened up half an hour early for us prior to a lunchtime train.

    I do prefer this stuff fried though....don't like it soft and floppy.

    I'm pretty sure Los Amigos is a chain of restaurants as there's one in my area.

    It kinda falls into that awful "Tex-mex" description where the food is basically a UK interpretation of mexican and american food. Fair play if you enjoy it, but if you get the chance I world search out a mexican-owned kitchen where you'll see a world of difference.

    When you can't see the angles on the wall you're in trouble.

    I go to the Mission in Reading every Friday. Really fucking good.

    They have one in Brizzle too.
    Mission Burrito in Bristol is fantastic. Well worth a trek up the super-steep Park Street to help replace those lost calories.

    how do you make these?

    would fried mince mixed in with 5 rating chilli-p and a tortilla do?
    If you're going for the world's most simple and bland burrito then yes.
    I'm sure it'll suit you perfectly.

    There's no such thing as an "authentic burrito" unless you're just choosing to skimread Wikipedia. You might as well say there's such a thing as an "authentic sandwich". A burrito is a flour tortilla with stuff in it. That's about it. Even the big ones that weigh two pounds were still invented by Mexicans.

    For the flask? Dare I ask.

    Give yourself 5 or gig, you're worth it.

    The Findus Crispy Pancake is a distant descendant of the burrito.

    A classic burrito is a tortilla with whatever you like in it. You can put in some pork verde, or beef mince, or chicken, with refried beans and rice and sour cream, some guacamole if that's your thing, pico de gallo, black beans. Any combination of that, pretty much.

    I'm pretty sure that's what they use in Mexico.

    Not sacrilege, but pointless. The sauce would overwhelm everything else. One of the high points of the grande burrito is for multiple textures and flavours.

    Think he's going to substitute the tortilla for toast next.

    Use salsa instead of that.

    Of course, I could have just typed that because I like to say salsa.

    To make a delicious burrito you really need to let them rest in front of a couple of fans you use for sleeping. While you are sleeping.

    Your ingredients should be as low-rent as possible.

    You then have a tasty breakfast burrito.

    If you store the tortilla between the wooden board and the foam mattress you sleep on, they keep warm up to twice as long as they would in a typical sandwich thermos - or even sausage foil.

    I put them in the front of my pants, which serves the dual purpose of keeping them warm and making it look like I have a giant shlong.

    A giant round, flat shlong? Like a bottom feeding fish?

    Pancho's Burritos are the best Manchester have to offer. Based in the food market in the Arndale. Kicks Taco Bell all over the shop.
