Oh boy, this is gonna confuse the enchilada vs burrito crowd

It is an Enchirito. Taco bell used to have them.


davenobody t1_j6c1kw1 wrote

Used to frequent a joint called Taco Bravo. Was like Taco Bell only the ingredients were all the real thing. Everything was like old Taco Bell menu on steroids. If cheese went on top you could not see what is under. Why am I even writing this? Anyway, maybe I want more cheese.


StevenTM t1_j6eqnnt wrote

What exactly do you think the ingredients at taco bell are? Can you.. like.. not see them slice the lettuce and tomatoes? They do it open air style in all the ones I've been at.


elanhilation t1_j6eyroi wrote

there’s a distinct artificiality to Taco Bell ingredients in my neck of the woods. meat, sour cream, cheese, all feel subtly off


BadCaseOfClams t1_j6ezr3r wrote

Ya. Taco Bell ingredients are like the version of an item from an alternate universe with like… one degree of separation from our own. It’s like… the uncanny valley of food. Is this nacho cheese? Or is this make believe? That’s how it tastes. Like pretend food.


davenobody t1_j6fbhis wrote

I suspect the texture of the ingredients at taco bell are due to extended shelf life properties.


StevenTM t1_j6fe4fd wrote

So.. same as most products that you can get at a supermarket that aren't organic/are cheap. Bland tasting tomatoes that are just barely pink inside, watery and flavorless lettuce, average or below quality American cheese, the cheapest ground beef with 15-20% "connective tissue and other" and sub 10% fat (which is what gives it flavor).

Pretty sure if I make a taco with the cheapest of the above that I can find at Aldi it'll be indistinguishable (taste-wise) from one from taco bell

That said, their chicken has always been tasty (to me), and some stuff like the crunchwrap supreme was pretty consistently great.


davenobody t1_j6fhg7g wrote

I like Taco Bell sometimes too. I don't think organic has anything to do with it either. The place I described did crazy volume and went really fresh with their ingredients. Isn't fancy or expensive either. They also feed the 2am tossed out of the bar crowd. So they have a unique set of strengths that make them worth a drive to experience.


requiemofchaos t1_j6c8336 wrote

It's basically what a "wet burrito" is at any taqueria.


Belgand t1_j6djl4i wrote

I'll wade into that a bit. Part of the difference is down to the fillings. If you're making a Mission-style burrito with beans and rice, that wouldn't go in an enchilada.

Wrapping also plays a role. Enchiladas are typically made with corn tortillas while burritos are almost without exception flour. I make enchiladas with flour myself, but corn is still the more traditional version.


Food_and_CatSubs t1_j6expr7 wrote

Shrimp and a white or green sauce are good with flour but anything else I usually find gets mushy

LoL the sauce it's bathing in did have me confusing it for enchiladas...

wait a minute, I'm still confused....Burritos or Enchiladas....WHICH ONE IS IT? LoL


barryandorlevon t1_j6botwy wrote

Well the flour tortilla says burrito but the enchilada sauce says… I DON’T KNOWWWWW


blahblahrasputan t1_j6c9zdl wrote

I'm confused, I've had lots of flour tortilla based enchiladas


dclancy01 t1_j6cm0h7 wrote

i’ve had plenty of flour tortilla based enchiladas, but never an enchilada sauce & cheese covered burrito.

they’re enchiladas.


Belgand t1_j6dkrh5 wrote

That's common at many taquerias. It's usually referred to as "mojado" or "wet". They make a burrito as normal, then cover it with enchilada sauce, cheese, and stick it under the broiler for a sec to melt it. It's like a buck or two upgrade for any burrito.


mrd_stuff t1_j6coz4v wrote

What if it's covered in green chilli and cheese but not in a pan with other burritos?


dclancy01 t1_j6cpoxe wrote

for me, it’s the sauce that makes an enchilada an enchilada. you can have flour tortilla burritos but not saucy burritos!


blahblahrasputan t1_j6dqwd3 wrote

Actually I did have a "wet burro" in Northern California once that had green sauce and cheese. Well now I'm definitely confused. Edit Morro Straight I think it was


librarianjenn t1_j6d3hpg wrote

I have too, but that is typically the main difference between them - enchiladas use corn tortillas, and burritos, flour.


majarian t1_j6c65nk wrote

Pretty sure it says 'i eat what I want'

And I for one am here to listen


SnuggleBunni69 t1_j6byahl wrote

Whatever thos eare, I wouldn't call them burritos. We live in a society of rules! There are procedures!


kalabaddon t1_j6brtr1 wrote

I mean their just wet burrito's before plating tho right? and my god do I want them!!!


doom32x t1_j6ce3y0 wrote

Flour disqualifies the enchiladas segment of my brain. I'm a white boy, but I'm from San Antonio, enchiladas are corn, tacos are either, burritos are flour.

Edit: I absolutely brain farted and meant flour, not corn for burritos. Jesus fucking Christ I feel like Ford eating the tamal with the husk and all.


t_ran_asuarus_rex t1_j6chfoo wrote

you have had burritos made with a corn tortilla? i've only known flour tortillas for burritos.

That's a dang enchilada! Looks delicious!


Shoes-tho t1_j6eye2m wrote

Enchiladas do not use flour tortillas and the ends are folded in just like a burrito. They’re just smothered burritos.

That sauce looks legit

TheShadyGuy t1_j6cy75w wrote

That looks like a red chilli sauce, may or may not also contain tomatoes. In this case it is a can of enchilada sauce, according to the link.


fuck_huffman t1_j6bull7 wrote

It looks like the ends are folded so I vote burritos.

All the enchiladas I've eaten were open ended.


SolidDoctor t1_j6bvdj8 wrote

A local market makes something that looks very similar, but they call them beef chimichangas. Which is completely wrong, because chimichangas are deep fried.

And whatever's on the inside, isn't beef. I don't know what it is. It has the consistency of refried beans, but it isn't that either.


[deleted] t1_j6cvwnd wrote



knave-arrant t1_j6dxqr0 wrote

Taco meat? Are you talking about chopped up ranchera or ground beef? Because yeah mixing in beans with ground beef would make that kind of consistency, but true taco meat would not.


SolidDoctor t1_j6e5rj0 wrote

Well I worked as a cook in a Mexican restaurant for a few years, so yes. And I love cooking, I've made many Mexican style dishes. I have never been able to turn taco beef into tasteless creamy paste, nor would I ever want to!


Hinote21 t1_j6dabtb wrote

If you cook room temp hamburger on medium heat and constantly stir it, you get maximum separation of the hamburger with a...creamy? Consistency after adding water and taco seasoning

It’s called a burrito mojado at most Mexican restaurants.

likeeggs t1_j6d3wrl wrote

In the SW part of the states you can get any burrito, and sometimes lots of other things, smothered with red or green chile and cheese. It’s the best and we do this at home too when everyone wants all the chile possible.

I grew up in South Texas, I have never had a burrito or enchiladas that look like this. We had actual Mexican food.

Wtf is this?

FYI, cheese and chili sauce on enchiladas is a texmex or American thing, you don't find lettuce, cheese, or tomato on tacos in Mexico.
