This question is similar to the "Can God make a stone so heavy even he can not lift it?" question. This current form of it was popularized by the show, "The Simpsons", where Homer asks the question in the burrito form.

The point of the question is to prove God isn't almighty: If he can make it, but can not eat(lift) it, than he isn't all-powerful. If he can not make it, that also he isn't all powerful.

This is a question that leads to a syllogistic error. Philosophically, it can be an interesting question, on par with angels and the head of a pin, or the flavor of blue, but it cannot be answered. It has no answer.

The error in the logic of the question is that you can not compare an infinite being (God), to a finite thing (a hot burrito OR heat). A burrito can only get so hot because heat has a finite end to how hot it can get. If you wanted to get it hotter than how hot it can actually get, then the "hot burrito" becomes an illogical/non-existent thing. God, on the other hand, is infinite in His power, so there is no end to what he can or can not do.

So again, the question is unanswerable because it does not make sense when you actually think about what it's trying to compare.

There's also the notion that "God is" literally everywhere...so he would *be* the burrito itself no matter how hot it got, at this point in time and 2 minutes before this question was asked and 2000 years into the future *all at once*; he's literally everywhere and everything in the entire existence.

The answer is simple. Yes he could. He would simply create an insanely hot burrito and then give up the power to be able to withstand the heat. Although to do this would be almost as pointless as the question and he therefor wouldn't ever bother.
