California Burrito

Return recipes

Do you know what makes the California Burrito different from all others? Down in San Diego, everyone's favorite side dish gets put into the main course! That’s right, today we put french fries in our burrito. While this might sound like an unlikely duo, pairing crispy french fries with carne asada creates a mouth watering burrito like no other.

While popular all over the Golden Coast, this Cali-Mex dish originated in sunny San Diego. While many taco shops are rumored to have come up with this iconic combination, most locals credit Santana’s as being the first restaurant to sell the burrito in the 80’s.

Many taco shops in the area have taken their own interpretation on what goes in a California burrito, but some ingredients remain constant. With carne asada, french fries, sour cream, salsa, fresh guacamole, and cheese, all warped in a warm flour tortilla, it's hard to go wrong. Make sure you cook your fries in olive oil from Spain for the perfect crunch.
