Sometimes there’s nothing better than having your protein, rice and veggies (and everything but the kitchen sink) all wrapped up in one delicious bite. And even though most burritos are often consumed at the same rapid-fire pace they’re constructed, there’s an art to getting that bite right—starting with the careful selection of ingredients and ending with that perfect fold, so that not even a grain of rice escapes.
