Burrito Architecture

My apologies for this sounding like a THEEK thread but...

I just got back from Chipotle and was enjoying my steak fajita burrito with corn and hot salsa, sour cream and cheese.

Now when the folks at Chipotle make a burrito, there is a nice layering effect. If you look at the burrito lengthwise, there's a section for rice, then the grilled peppers and onions (fajita style), then the meat, then the sour cream.

So my question to y'all is:

Do you prefer the contents to be "layered" or all mixed up?

I think I prefer the layered, except for when I hit the 99% hot salsa section

i would prefer mine mixed up. When I bite into a burrito from chipotle, what I end up with is one half of the burrito all rice, and 1 half all the good stuff. So I have to rotate it 90 degrees, resquish it, and then eat it (ie. I get vertical layers instead of horizontal layers).

I would rather have it mixed up, especially Chipotle burritos. I find a lot of the bites very uneven (yes, I get the hot salsa). However, the few times I've seen someone ask for them to mix it up, they had to go find two plastic forks and it annoyed all of the workers. For $5.25 or whatever, I'll just deal

Mixed. I just go for the burrito in a bowl and do it myself.

I like it layered. Each bite is a different texture and taste. While I don't like to get a big bite of shell and salsa but, it's all good.

I prefer the mixed up version. In fact, I usually order a carnitas burrito bowl, with my regular fixins, plus a tortilla on the side. That way I mix it up in the bowl, then eat it a little at a time with my tortilla. It's really the best system I've found.

I hate Freebirds. Not too big on Chipotle either. Mission Burrito is the best in my area.

For some reason this thread reminds me of Taco Town...

I prefer Zooka's (local stand-alone) and they mix on request, which I request.

Steak, rice, black beans, cheese, onions, roasted jalapenos, salsa, buffalo burrito sauce, and salt & pepper. Yum. Now I know what's for supper.
