Burrito Hull Breach Patches

S.O.B (Save our Burritos)
  [vote for,

The burrito might be the perfect food. A veritable melting pot of ingredients comes together in a miraculous flexible and edible containment hull (known as a tortilla).

Unfortunately, a burrito often succumbs to its inner demons and springs a leak. Tasting freedom, refried beans, queso, rice, salsa emerge, first tentatively, and then in a deluge. The mighty burrito has now lost one of its prime virtues: portability.

It's nothing more than a mexican stew at this point, condemned to vivisection by fork and knife.

These hull breaches must be stopped in order to save the dignity of the noble burrito.

The solution is to use Burrito Patches: a packet of miniature tortilla squares complete with a small amount of Tortilla Glue (baked here previously). When a hull breach is detected, the diner simply applies a patch to avert a tragic breakdown of structural integrity.

       I'm not so sure about tortilla glue. Perhaps something with some mechanical bite.

       Following the Tortilla Glue link, I found this link: Edible Tape, for just the purpose you mention. Not as fun as a patch kit, but more convenient maybe?   

       Bun for you, now I want to see these on store shelves the first of next week, please.

       I tend to eat my wounded burritos as if I am Gian Maria Volonté, about to face Lee Van Cleef.

       Bite a little hole at one end and suck the burrito dry. Yes, it looks obscene, but it tastes better than it looks.

       That, elhigh, is a meat bagbong.
