Enchiladas are a Mexican dish that consists of corn tortillas that are stuffed with filling and smothered in a sauce of hot chili peppers. You can fill enchiladas with chicken, beef, fish, vegetables, cheese, beans, potatoes, or whatever your imagination inspires you to use. A very common question with Mexican recipes is what’s the difference between an enchilada and a burrito? Due to conflicting sources, this is not always the easiest question to answer. Most agree, however, that their main difference lies in their ingredients and wrapping style. Although the two Mexican dishes are very similar, enchiladas are most often made with corn tortillas, while burritos are made with wheat flour tortillas. Enchiladas are most often filled with meats, beans, vegetables, and cheese, and are topped with spicy chili sauce, while burritos are most often filled with refried beans, meat, and rice. No sauce is added to burrito recipes. While enchiladas are rolled into cylindrical shapes, burritos are folded into neat “packages” that don’t spill their contents very easily. While people often eat their enchiladas with a knife and a fork, burritos can be picked up in the hands and eaten that way, as you would eat a wrap or a sandwich. Furthermore, burritos tend to be much larger than enchiladas.
