The second is the one that applies to burritos as they're usually loaded with beans, rice and meats much like a cart being pulled by a donkey would be. What's next? Nachos got their name from a guy named Ignacio? I'll let you figure that one out.
    Not talking about the small little Mexican donkey, but a burro. Wild American burros, that are off breeds of old miners burros who prospected in the American Southwest during the 1800's. There's thousands and thousands of them running wild in the California, Arizona and Nevada deserts today. And American Indians in the American Southwest have been eating them for just as long.

    The burrito is Sonoran.

    As the story goes, some Chihuahua's (Apache) were returning from a raiding party into Mexico. Some of their loot was a stack of some tortillas. When they got back to the United States they shot a wild burro and cooked it. They threw some burro meat into the tortilla and rolled it up and they had a burrito.

    I was always told that the food came to be called "burrito" because the vendors that sold them traveled on donkeys so the food came to be known as the burrito or "little donkey". I've never heard they were called that because they were made from donkey.

    Yeah I get that. I won't speak for the whole country but on my rural property the coon, armadillo, possum, and skunk are the nuisance pests and they are sent to Jesus with regularity. The fox on the other hand, is very seldom seen and has never bothered me, and when I do see one (4 sightings in 17 years here), I just stop and watch it which is always brief.

    If that was how it originated then, then it would still be common to get a burrito filled with donkey meat. I have never heard of this or known anyone in Mexico or the US to eat donkey meat or that the name originated like that. Also, they would have just called it a taco de burro. It wouldn't make sense to call a tortilla filled with meat a "little burro"
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    I had a family of fox (3) in my back yard till a couple of years ago when the coyote took over, I thought the coyote got the fox, maybe it was the Chinese?

    The hamburger meat sold at Walmart here in the U.S. contains meat from Canada, U.S. and Mexico (last time I checked). Are we sure it is what it says it is? My guess is that, as long as we seek quantity over quality, ...t happens.

    I wonder how many unproductive Chinese workers were also dumped into the vat?

    Wal-Mart will reimburse customers who bought the tainted "Five Spice" donkey meat and is helping local food and industry agencies in eastern Shandong province investigate its Chinese supplier, it said late on Wednesday in official posts on China's Twitter-like Weibo. The Shandong Food and Drug Administration earlier said the product contained fox meat.

    The scandal could dent Wal-Mart's reputation for quality in China's $1 trillion food and grocery market where it plans to open 110 new stores in the next few years. China is the largest grocery market in the world and is set to grow to $1.5 trillion by 2016, according to the Institute of Grocery Distribution.

    Sounds like they toss any animal they can get their hands on into the meat grinder.
    Donkey meat huh? Can't say I ever had any, but I guess if it is fried or BBQ'd it probably would taste like chicken.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
