The scene, set sometime in the early 1900s, is a rural Mexican outpost. A little donkey walks slowly into frame, carrying a large blanket-roll on its back. Cut to the blanket being unwrapped, and you see a traditional tortilla, wrapped around mouthwatering meats, beans and cheese!

Scene two is present days, where the humble Burrito has acquired legendary status for its authentic, wholesome deliciousness. This infographic explores how this concept food has taken the world by storm.
