That thing looks perfectly salvageable. Just get lots of napkins, bend over the foil, roll it up and eat like a pig. Might be messy, but WTF cares.

Ya know, before some smart "proper" guy came up with the idea of utensils, people had to eat with their fingers!

So...GET TO IT! You get no sympathy from me.

Unfortunately, I only have 2 napkins left. I have had limited success since the OP. I actually made sort of a mini-burrito with some of the extra tortilla.

Also, used some chips to scoop with. DEEEE-licious.

Heh, heh.. go to India for a while, they manage to eat everything without utensils, even soups and stuff...

Burritos like that can be saved, use the foil to wrap it back together like a giant doobie, squeeze tightly and gently unroll the foil from one end.

Use the tortilla as a utensil, like in Ethiopian cuisine. Eat with your hands

Exactly what I thought when I saw it. I am 100% that is Chipotle. That place is amazing!

As for the dilemma you faced earlier, man up and eat it with your hands...

I find the trick to eating burritos cleanly is not to unwrap it. Peel off the tip about 1" at a time and take bites out of the exposed end. Unwrap another strip of foil 1" tall all around. Eat the exposed part, peel, repeat...

Yeah, kinda. Instead of peeling off in strips down the banana, you peel off rings of foil around the burrito. Think of those rings around a barrel or drum. I got used to eating a lot on the road in cars and crowded vans on all those road-trips to races.
