Step 6: Slide

Fully Rolled Burrito

At this point, I recommend sliding the burrito toward yourself, whether you are planning on wrapping it in something or not. The slide will help you tighten the burrito one last time.

If you decide to wrap your burrito, many restaurants use foil for several reasons. One, it is readily available, easily moldable, and holds its shape. Additionally, the foil wrapper works as an insulation, keeping the burrito warm and causing the tortilla to fuse to itself thus making it substantially easier to eat your burrito.
