Rice & Beans in Burritos in the US vs. Mexico - Why?

KathyM | Mar 28, 201109:15 PM     41

I've only been to Mexico via Club Med (please don't make fun of me) so I've never tasted real street food there. Can someone explain to me the real differences between a burrito in the US versus a burrito in Mexico? I live in northern California and the burritos here come with rice and beans. Not my style. I love rice and beans, but not in a burrito. Whenever I go to a semi-authentic Mexican place and order a burrito, it never includes rice and beans within the burrito; but yet this seems to be the norm. I heard that this is a California anomaly. But can I get some insight as to why this happens? I don't even think Mexicans in Mexico eat burritos that much and that's it's more of an Mexican-American thing, is this true?
