These days, burritos are much more popular in the U.S. and the northern part of Mexico than they are in Mexico as a whole. If you fry a burrito, it becomes a chimichanga. The Mission Burrito became popular in the 1960s. Their large size and extra ingredients made them appealing to the American public.
