Corn burrito

A corn burrito is a Mexican-style dish consisting of a small rolled-up corn tortilla filled with refried beans. The filled tortilla is deep-fried topped with hot sauce and cheese. A corn burrito is the same thing as a taquito, the difference being that taquitos are filled with meat, whereas a corn burrito is always filled with refried beans. Corn burritos are topped with cheese salted, served with a mild red sauce, sour cream, or guacamole. Traditional sauce is a base of tomato and water with 1/3 onion and yellow pepper all blended together, salted to taste. Although corn burritos are cheap and easy to make, they cost more than one would think, this is attributed to the usability of the frying oil after preparation. Unlike meat filling, the refried bean filling falls out the end of the rolled tortilla contaminating the remainder of the oil which requires frequent cleaning and frequent changing. Although the idea of filling a rolled up tortilla with refried beans may be a common one, the term "Corn Burritos" is well known to the locals of Ventura County, California, USA, they can be found at many Mexican fast food restaurants in the Ventura County, California area.
