In the 1895 Diccionario de Mexicanismos, the burrito was identified as a regional item from Guanajuato and defined as "Tortilla arrollada, con carne u otra cosa dentro, que en Yucatán llaman coçito, y en Cuernavaca y en Mexico, taco" (A rolled tortilla with meat or other ingredients inside, called 'coçito' in Yucatán and 'taco' in the city of Cuernavaca and in Mexico City)

I can´t find it and what article but have my own theory. A burro is for carrying or a beast of burden. A very large tortilla with food inside wrapped up is a carrying device to transport your lunch out to where you are working, no Tupperware, baggies or aluminum foil in those days. Just cloths. Burrito,.. little burro. Now I am homesick for a SD taco shop burrito.

Don't know why you can't find the article - the link works fine for me. Anyway, you have more or less guessed the origin of the word without any help from the internet!

I just read this long and interesting thread about burritos, and I don't believe anyone ever responded to the Irishman's initial question! After reading all those posts about whether he was or was not doing "real" Mexican food, he obviously gave up on finding a way to keep his beans hot!

Fair Warning !!! - Eating a Breakfast Burrito in San Juan del Rio, QRO !!!!
My first ever experience of eating a much beloved tradition of a McDonalds Breakfast Burrito in San Juan del Rio, QRO was a fast and unforgettable one. First off was the getting used to the fact that breakfast sausage in Mexico is not the same as in many parts of México it is simply a FUD hot dog chopped up and not really breakfast sausage as we have come to know it NOB.

Secondly was the fact that both ends of the burrito were left open, . . . . . . and as I took the first bite of my familiar epicurean delight, the juices came rushing out and promptly squirted all over my nice clean shirt, a "pale yellow color" at that, advertising I was indeed a newly arrived "gringo" eating at this favorite breakfast house before learning to read Spanish and relying on the only familiar word on the menu, . . . . . . . an "old friend" the McDonald's Breakfast Burrito!!!!

Who knows maybe his next client was a fashion designer and stole my idea of making a "Gringo Burrito Shirt" and maybe made a million pesos off of my idea! (smiling) or maybe the owner of the McDonalds franchise who forgot about it right away, as both ends of the McDonald's Breakfast Burrito remain open to this very day! (smiling) (Smiling, not so brightly at that (pardon the pun))

So fair warning . . . . . Bring a bib, or a raincoat at the very least, when eating a McDonald's Breakfast Burrito in San Juan del Rio, QRO ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
