Nevada State Dish (Recipe)
Chorizo Burgers (Unofficial Main Dish)
Some of Nevada's earliest settlers, from the French-Spanish Basque region, arrived in the state planning to farm sheep as they had done in Europe. Though sheep farming is not a notable industry in Nevada today, the Basque influence can be seen in many local dishes. Most of Nevada's common foods are American classics with some extra spice, peppers, olives, or herbs, and the state dish is no exception. The all-American burger gets the full treatment. Chorizo burgers are a blend of beef and chorizo sausage, with roasted peppers and spices. They are a very popular lunch with salad or fried potatoes.
