What is a classic authentic mexican burrito filled with?

Ramius | Jan 14, 201306:07 AM     233

I´ve been learning how to make burritos from Youtube videos lately. And they turn out tasting pretty good. I´ve been trying to find as many spanish speaking and latino looking cooks as possible.

So please correct me if I´m wrong, but my impression of the burrito, is that it contains these fillings layered on top of one another:

-Refried beans
-Guacamole
-Carne asada
-Salsa
-Cheese

I´ve been making my guacamole fresh, as well as my salsa, and I´m surprised of how much cilantro they use in all this. But it turns out pretty good. I´ve also made some different versions of carne asada, because I always don´t have flank steak, or time to marinate overnight. But my question is, is that combination the authentic version? Is this what you call a classic burrito?

I´d like to learn more mexican recipes, but the popular image of mexican food is pretty distorted by fast food chains, trends and marketing. I understand that tex-mex is a merging of both Texan and Mexican food, but I would like to explore more authentic mexican!
