Burritos, tacos, and all other wraps should have a seaweed lining to prevent them from getting soggy over time and falling apart when you try to eat them.
Don't you hate it when you get a wrap to eat later but then stews in its sauces and disintegrates before you can enjoy it? The sauces are part of the joy of the meal and taking them out would take away from the experience, so the only way to fix it is to make the outer wrap more resilient to the sauces and seaweed does this while adding more nutrients to the meal. 2 for 1 deal right there.
How it works
So I thought about how this could be done and came to two possible ways.
There is a technique for cooking chapati where you can add grated vegetables to the batter while mixing it and then cook it as one item . Using this but with strips of seaweed which are high in fibre could add to the internal toughness without making it tough to eat. The fibre is also good for digestion, cleaning your gut and preventing constipation.
Using a layer of nori sheets on top of the wrap and then pouring the filling on the sheets before wrapping it is another solution. This waterproofs the wheat based wrap meaning it will stay dry for longer as well as retain it's structure when you bite it.
