“Well, they keep shooting us for curing cancer, so…”


Corporate food has created unholy tasteless dry abominations called “tortillas”. They have convinced Americans that this is what tortillas are. They have played us for absolute fools.

Real tortillas are freshly made wet dough immediately squished and cooked before forming burrito. They are delicious and sticky enough to hold on their own. It’s perfect but not mass producible.


How do I find this


Pigup will probably cringe at this answer, but I found uncooked tortillas at the grocery store before. Definitely better than mission tortillas.


Make yourself, blow your mind wide open:

I wouldn’t have got the lettuce if I knew it wouldn’t fit Wouldn’t have got the cheese if I knew it wouldn’t fit Wouldn’t have got the peppers if I knew they wouldn’t fit I wouldn’t have got half of it Like, I’m okay with small mistakes If you’ve got no more chicken, I’ll take pork But I’ll blow my dad before I eat a burrito with a fork


Hol’ up, you hating on wet burritos? They’re glorious.


Ahhhhhh so good, I haven’t seen this in a while, thank you for sharing.


The amount of people criticizing this is kind of crazy.

Even though this isn’t needed for wrapping burritos, it probably could be used somewhere. It’s a neat idea. I wonder how the edible tape is to eat though. Somehow the sticky nature seems like it’d be off-putting.

If it’s bakeable, it’d be great for patching up my terrible pizone sealing!

a properly constructed burrito is wrapped in aluminum foil and can be eaten, even while walking, without making a mess.

edible tape sounds like something with useful applications, but i am sad for the people who believe burritos require this.

Kids in college found a novel problem and then developed a novel solution for fun.

Made old man make old-man grumpy comment. Indeed, burritos were wrapped so tight in foil, they would walk themselves both ways uphill to burrito school in the snow without boots.

I declare the Johns Hopkins students victorious!


These college kids working at Chipotle is what got us into this mess!


God damned gen z ruining another industry.

there were still some industries not already ruined by millennials?


A proper burrito stays closed without foil, a steamed tortilla should get sticky enough.


True but sometimes the tortilla rips open and the foil provides solid backup

If your burrito doesn’t stay closed, the person making your burrito had no idea what the hell they were doing. This is a Chipotle problem.



I haven’t been there in a few years but I stopped in recently and I was a bit dumbfounded when they guy burritoing up my food made it as spherical as possible


Lol I reroll mine sometimes.

This is why it’s important to have a diverse college campus.


It’s called not using a cold ass tortilla

What do you expect food scientists to do?

Not invent food things?


I smoked pot with Johnny Hopkins.

It was Johnny Hopkins and Sloan Kettering. And they were blazing that shit up every day.

I like to crisp up my burrito in a pan after I roll it. if you brown the side with the opening first then the juices trying to escape soften up the tortilla enough to get cooked together. It’s like welding a burrito shut.


That’s no longer a burrito. That’s a chimmichanga.


Chimichangas are deep fried

Were just talking about a quick sear to seal the burrito shut


This is in a dry pan, so no oil. A toasted sandwich is still a sandwich. Putting your burrito in a hot pan/griddle does not change it being a burrito


Counterpoint: If you sear a sandwich shut you have a panini.


Sounds like a great idea.


I use a dash of cheese in the flap and then I throw it on the griddle


When someone says their burritos won’t stay shut I immediately know that they don’t know what they’re doing.


I bought a master lock for my burrito, it can be opened with another burrito.


I’ve picked like 10 locks since Christmas. Lpl and McNally have created a menace.


This is the burrito picking lawyer and what I have for you today is delicious!


Maybe they can use that tape to keep their mouth shut so none of us need to listen to them


Who the fuck doesn’t know how to hold a burrito?


People with mobility issues for example… Not everything is made to solve issues of fully functional people


Very true, it’s mostly harmless, but people are quick to ridicule stuff without considering the useful applications for others- that if they think are dumb they can just not use. And it’s usually the least annoying things. Straws, replacing cobbled sidewalks with asphalt or concrete, difficulty options in games, tab indentation, getting rid of historic trams/busses with high passenger areas, to name a few.
