You can keep Taco Tuesday: The first Thursday in April is National Burrito Day. This year, it falls on April 7, when you can take advantage of buy-one-get-one burrito deals, extra rewards points, free toppings and more.

The exact origins of the burrito -- Spanish for "little donkey" -- are a mystery, but its first known mention in print was in The Dictionary of Mexican Spanish in 1895, where Cuban writer Félix Ramos y Duarte described it as "a rolled tortilla with meat or other ingredients inside."

Some have theorized it was invented by vaqueros, 19th-century Mexican cowboys, who needed an easily portable snack. They took the name from the similarity between the dish and the bedrolls pack mules would carry in Mexico. Others claim the burrito originated in the 1910s in Chihuahua, where street vendor Juan Méndez wrapped his food in tortillas to keep it warm and transported it on his donkey. 

However it began, the burrito made its way to Southern California by the 1930s and eventually became a global favorite. Today, regional variations have generated strong opinions about what else is allowed -- beans, rice, lettuce, salsa, even french fries.

Below, we've got the best National Burrito Day deals all wrapped up.
