smoked chili

With just a couple of days left before the big game, you’re probably in the middle of whipping up a killer Super Bowl spread. As we scour the internet for last-minute recipes, Google has released some interesting insights regarding your football-themed menu planning. They compiled a list of the most uniquely-searched recipe for each state.

Some of the results are entirely predictable (a lot of us will be eating chicken wings and chili, duh!), but some states have some oddly specific requests. Alaskans will be gobbling down dill pickle dip with dried beef, while Nebraskans favor cream cheese jalapeño hamburgers. Meanwhile people in Wyoming are researching what do with plain and simple ground beef. May we suggest sliders? Or maybe tacos? Whatever you do, don’t just serve it as is!
