About California Burrito Recipe:

The California burrito is a San Diego favourite that includes french fries and carne asada for a satisfying and flavorful dinner. Roast potatoes are used in this dish, which is easier to prepare at home (although you can certainly substitute real fries for a more authentic style). For a hungry southern Californian in a hurry, California burritos are the go-to lunch or dinner. A homemade burrito is a terrific way to try a border town classic; it does take a little time to prepare, but it will satisfy even the most ravenous appetites. Make sure you get the biggest flour tortillas you can find. Despite its name, the California Burrito is exclusively available in southern California, notably San Diego. In the 1980s, the California burrito was created at an unnamed restaurant in San Diego. The California burrito was also claimed to be invented by the Fresh MXN chain (originally Santana's). The first time it was mentioned in print was in a 1995 piece in the Albuquerque Tribune. Now let’s look into the recipe of this yummy dish.
