That depends on who you ask.
Based on past restaurant visits where Tex-Mex fair is served, enchiladas are made with corn tortillas and come with different fillings. Enchiladas are topped with a sauce. Enough can't be said. There are many versions.
Burritos are made with flour tortillas and come with different fillings. They aren't topped with a sauce. Again, enough can't be said.

The enchiladas are made with tortillas and a little of cream and it also is made with a little of chili.

At least in my country the enchiladas are an dishes very popular between the people near of the region.

The definitions of enchiladas and burritos are extremely different in the US as compared to in Mexico.

Enchilada (US) - a smallish (8'' diameter) wheat flour tortilla rolled up with a filling (cheese, chicken etc), doused in red chili sauce. (usually)
Enchilada (Mex) - a small (4'' diameter) corn flour tortilla, toasted on a grill and covered with chili sauce, cheese, lettuce etc, served open-face; OR the same corn tortilla, dipped in chili sauce and served folded in half and topped with ground white cheese.

Burrito (US) - large wheat flour tortilla (10"-12" diameter) filled with a variety of fillings (beans, cheese, rice etc).
Burrito/Burro (Mex) - Non-existent in most areas. In some areas it is synonomous with "taco".

Taco (US) - a taco shell (hard, corn-based-- resembles a fried tortilla folded in half and open about an inch) filled with ground beef, cheese, lettuce etc.
Taco (Mex) - a soft corn flour tortilla, open-face, rolled up, or folded over, with any of about 3,000 possible fillings. "Taco/taquito dorado" is a rolled up, deep fried corn tortilla, with many possible fillings.

For burritos you have to use a flour tortilla because if you use a corn tortilla then it is called a taco!

So, for the sake of argument a burrito is ALWAYS made with a flour tortilla.

A taco (hard or soft shell) can be made with a flour OR a corn tortilla but a hard shell taco is ALWAYS with a corn tortilla. If you get a hard shell flour (huge) taco it's probably a Taco Salad.

Taquitos are deep fried and are not to be confused with a Chimichanga! Taquitos are smaller and thinner whereas a Chimichanga is fatter.

Enchiladas are corn tortillas that are smothered in red or green sauce and can be filled with just cheese or with a zillion other ingredients.

THEY ARE ALL DELICIOUS!

Now that you are totally confused, please don't eat them everyday or you will look like a Chimichanga!

I have heard before about a restaurant named Taco Bell in U.S.A. But I don't know if here the food is very Mexican or only it's just a imitation.
