While a wrap and a burrito both use tortillas, are they still different? Could it be that a wrap is more of a regular sandwich with a tortilla instead of two slices of bread (same fillings)? A burrito uses different fillings all together, and a combo of things you would never put on two slices of bread. - well most people wouldn't...
If you think that is bad, think of it this way. Eventhough they say a burrito isn't a sandwitch, to someone who is Hispanic, may view the burrito as a sandwitch. A burrito may not be a sandwitch in American culture, but in other cultures where sandwitches are not used, it maybe considered a sandwitch.
That being said, does that mean that a Gyro isn't a sandwitch either?
IMAO. Now Grapegrl has me confused. Sandwitches and Hamburgers.. OH God! They have veggie burgers and I have rolled up lunch meat and put it into a hamburger bun. Does that mean the sandwitch I made was really a mexican hamburger. Oh crap, I don't know. LOL.
I thought the burrito was Mexican. Plus don't they make the tortilla with flour like they do bread?
OK - here's one - what about the stromboli? Same thing - yeast dough with ham, cheese, and/or pepperoni slices but it's baked. You never see that as a sandwich item - it is always listed under pizza items. Why can't that be listed under hot sandwiches (grilled cheese sandwich, hot ham & cheese sandwich)?
