The image of US cuisine is very much associated with some of the leading fast-food brands around the world, as well as particular fast-foods such as hot dogs, cheeseburgers, and pizzas. However, there deeper examination reveals that there is a lot more to US cuisine including a huge of dishes and cooking styles, each with different historical influences. For example: Here are some popular US dishes:
  • Chicago-style pizza - A deep-dish variety of pizza, originally from Chicago.

  • Chili con carne - A spicy stew made from meat (usually beef) and chile peppers. Some recipes also add other ingredients such as beans, onions, and tomatoes, although there are also people who adamantly say the recipe should not include such ingredients.

  • Clam chowder - A soup, created using a milk base, and containing clams, flour, onions, potato, and bacon or salted pork. There are two main versions of this recipe:
    • The recipe traditionally made in New England, sometimes known as "New England clam chowder" or "Boston clam chowder", does not contain tomatoes.
    • The recipe traditionally made in New York City, sometimes known as "Manhattan clam chowder", which does contain tomatoes.

  • Club Sandwich - A sandwich made using three layers of toasted bread, between which are two layers of fillings. One layer of filling contains chicken or turkey breast meat. The other layer of filling contains bacon, lettuce and tomato slices. Variations of the recipe sometimes add extra ingredients such as cooked egg or sliced of cheese.

  • Congealed salad - A salad made from flavored gelatin into which are embedded fruit or vegetables such as grated carrots. Sometimes other ingredients such as cream cheese, marshmellows, nuts, or pretzels may be added instead.

  • Corn dog - A fast-food snack, traditionally eaten at fairs and other events. It is a hot dog, covered in cornmeal batter, and then deep-fried or baked. Corndogs are usually served on wooden sticks, and are usually eaten with ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard, or a relish.
