Arizona is a bit of a melting pot when it comes to what our traditional cuisine looks like. Traditionally, Arizona’s cuisine was heavily influenced by its Indigenous and early Mexican settlers. Once Americans began migrating in from the South and the Midwest, those cuisines have also been added to the mix, as well as foods from other immigrants over the decades until now.

That is why it can be difficult to determine just what Arizonans consider food favorites; a favorite food can depend on the region you grew up in, how long you have lived here, and your family’s background. What I consider favorites and staples, which leans heavily towards Indigenous and Mexican foods, may not be what others would have in mind. However, let’s take at these more traditional Arizona foods that I hope most residents have enjoyed at least once.
