Wikipedia: Burrito
A burrito (US: English: /bəˈritoʊ/) is a dish in Mexican and Tex-Mex cuisine that consists of a large wheat tortilla with various fillings. It is wrapped into a closed-ended cylinder, in contrast to a taco, where the tortilla is simply folded around the fillings. The tortilla is sometimes lightly grilled or steamed to soften it, make it more pliable, and allow it to adhere to itself when wrapped. A wet burrito is covered in sauce and therefore cannot be picked up.

Burritos are often blamed when people have ensuing stomach problems. But I think sometimes they just get a bad wrap.

Bad rap — not and never “bad wrap”. Unless you’re talking breakfast burritos.
