Apple pie

Apple actually is the country's favourite pie, according to a pie chart from the American Pie Council, which is then followed by pumpkin, chocolate, lemon meringue, and cherry.

Frito pie

Even the simplest chilli has hordes of devotees. Think about Kit Carson, who regretted not having time for one more bowl of cereal before he passed away.

Could there be a more calorie-dense complement to a pitcher of margaritas—the bane of diets and the joy of happy hours?

Hot dogs
