So, imagine the U.S. was holding some grand feast for European guests. The feast consisted of exactly 50 dishes from all 50 states. What would each state contribute?

This should be a fun thread. If you really can't think of one for every state, just put a question mark there and maybe the other posters will help you fill in the blanks with their answers.

Alabama: Southern fried chicken, or boiled gulf shrimp. And pecan pie, of course.

Typical answer for Arizona may be the Chimichanga, but if it was a feast for visitors, I would say the Plato Poca Cosa dish from Cafe Poca Cosa in Tucson. Everone could order the same dish, but chances are it will be different for everyone:

Cafe Poca Cosa - Plato Poca Cosa - Foodspotting

Texas has an entire genre of food: Tex-Mex, which includes just about everything that Americans think of as Mexican food, but was actually created in Texas to meet Mexican tastes, but made from ingredients more easily available in the US than in Mexico. Notable examples are Chili, Fajitas, Chimachingas and Tacos, which are unknown in traditional Mexican cuisine.

============

Also, Upper Michigan Pasties. A kind of baked meat and vegetable pie, baked with a crisp crust.

============

In or near Missouri, everybody knows about Green Tomato Pie. Baked like applie pie, but with green tomatoes instead of apples.
