How To Make Wet Burritos

What is a Wet Burrito and how is it different from a regular burrito?

A Wet Burrito is a popular variation of the traditional burrito that’s drenched in a savory sauce, typically a red chili sauce or enchilada sauce, and then baked to perfection. This gives the burrito a moist and flavorful finish, distinguishing it from its drier counterparts. A regular burrito, on the other hand, is often portable and can be consumed without utensils, while a Wet Burrito is typically served on a plate and is best enjoyed with a fork and knife.

The idea behind smothering a burrito in sauce originated from a desire to enhance its flavors and textures. When covered in sauce and baked, the tortilla becomes slightly soft and absorbs the richness of the sauce, creating a delightful contrast against the hearty fillings inside.

Now, speaking of fillings, while most burritos have fillings like beans, rice, meats, and veggies, Wet Burritos often feature more elaborate fillings. The ingredients inside a Wet Burrito blend harmoniously with the sauce on top. It’s not just about wrapping ingredients in a tortilla, but ensuring that every bite is a symphony of flavors.

To experience a Wet Burrito’s uniqueness, one should consider not just its saucy exterior but its entire composition. From the choice of tortilla to the fillings and the sauce, everything works together to give this dish its distinctive character.

Lastly, it’s essential to note that while Wet Burritos have become popular in many regions, they hold a special place in the hearts of those in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where some claim to have found the best versions of this dish.
