A lively discussion on the social-media site Reddit this week centered on a simple question about our state: "When you think about Arizona food, what dish do you think of?"
The Reddit user, posting on the site's /r/arizona subreddit, continued, "I’m making a web series on how to make the most iconic dish from each state. What Arizona dish would you like to see made?"
As you might imagine, in a state as big and diverse as Arizona, there were plenty of different responses. Here are some of the highest-rated ones:
- "Mexican food and Bosa Donuts make up 90 percent of my diet." (That probably isn't healthy.)
- "Carne asada ... you can find it in almost every town in Arizona."
- "Sonoran hot dog. It's not my favorite, but it can be quite good."
- "Chimichanga." (By some accounts, this Mexican dish was invented in Arizona.)
- "Navajo fry bread."
Of course, food is one of those topics about which people can argue endlessly and never reach a consensus. But what do you think? When you think of "Arizona food," what comes to mind? Let us know in the comments.
