April 1st National Burrito Day
National Burrito Day falls on the first Thursday in in April, why not. Now you can have 2 Taco Tuesdays and National Burrito Day in the same month. The first burritos probably were made hundreds of years ago but the first book to feature them came in 1895 in Mexico. By the 1930’s the burrito had become popular in the US, though no doubt made with different ingredients. Erna Fergusson, a very Latin type name, wrote the “Mexican Cookbook” in 1934 and introduced the Mexican delight to the world. By 1975 the breakfast burrito was in production and all was right with the world.
How to celebrate – Have a burrito. Visit Mexico. Invent your own type of burrito.
