These recipes showcase just some of the foods that Arizona is famous for. “The Grand Canyon State” was the 48th state to join the U.S.A in 1912. Although the Grand Canyon gets most of the glory, there are actually 22 national parks or monuments in Arizona. From the saguaro cactus to Havasu Falls, Arizona is full of wonders.
When it comes to food, Arizona is known for Fry Bread and the invention of Chimichangas. But I also wanted to give a nod to the desserts by making Nopales (a grilled cactus and corn salad). Sopapillas and Sonoran hot dogs are also some of the foods that Arizona is famous for.
