The burrito is America's Mexican food, and here in Phoenix, we're lucky to have some of the nation's best -- fresh, flavorful, and more often than not, fearsome in size. Check out our list of 10 burritos that remind you why you choose to live in Arizona.

Chicken burrito at Asadero Norte de Sonora
The chicken burrito at Asadero Norte de Sonora is refreshing on every level. First, there's the way in which your burrito is served, following a complimentary cup of frijoles a la charra as well as chips and salsa. Then there's the burrito itself, which is 100 percent fresh -- green guacamole, crisp cabbage, light sauce, and chopped rotisserie chicken with the skin on. Contrary to most garnishments, the cucumber slices, radishes, lime, and grilled jalapeño accompanying your burrito actually complement the dish rather than simply offer up aesthetic. But the most refreshing thing of all about this burrito turned multi-course meal? It's only $5. Five.

Carne Adovada Burrito at Los Dos Molinos
There's a reason why Los Dos Molinos has the motto "Some Like It Hot." Nearly everything on the menu packs a serious punch, and the carne adovada burrito is certainly no exception. Red-sauce-drenched pork (you can opt for green if you like) is packed inside a thick tortilla smothered in more red sauce and cheese accompanied by refried beans and rice. It's the kind of burrito that requires a fork, a knife, and a bottomless pitcher of water (or maybe just a Kick Ass margarita).

I wish you had included the deep fried green chili burritos from Juan's on 16th st and Thomas on this list! Not sure if you've tried this burrito but I would say it is hands down the best burrito I've ever had in my life!

Mmm, just had a burro from Carolina's Mexican Grill last night for dinner! The tortillas really aren't over-hyped. They're amazing.

I've eaten at Los Taquitos, I'm surprised they haven't killed someone yet. With The Original Burrito Company right up the road, any of a number of their burritos would be a better choice.

El pollo asado burrito at Crescent Ballroom is better than all those burritos.

Those all look like total gut bombs. I'll stick with the Clare Burro from Restaurant Mexico. Whole beans, avocado and green sauce.
