I see some questions (but mostly answers) that mention tags. For example I could mention the burrito tag here.
Is there a way I could search for posts that have mentioned a particular tag?

For cases where you're on a child meta site (e.g. Meta Stack Overflow) and you want to search for posts mentioning a main site tag, you can just search for e.g.
url:https://stackoverflow.com/questions/tagged/exception, as I mentioned in this answer.
That doesn't work for Meta Stack Exchange, cases where the
[tag:] syntax is used on a main site, or where
[meta-tag:] is used on a child meta site. Searching for

The obvious way, searching for the full URL with
url:https://meta.stackexchange.com/questions/tagged/burrito doesn't work in this particular case, because the
[tag:burrito] element is rendered as
<a href="/questions/tagged/burrito" class="post-tag" title="show questions tagged 'burrito'" rel="tag">burrito</a>, which uses a relative URL.
