Let’s see the next 10 states on the list: New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island and South Carolina.
1. New Mexico: Frito Pie. The dish was invented somewhere at the beginning of the 1930s and has become the New Mexican staple. Although the original recipe had chili ladled onto a small bag of Fritos, chains of restaurants around the country have added to this old recipe some new things. Still, most recipes include Fritos corn chips, beef, beans, onion, cheddar cheese, lettuce, and tomato, which brings to the table around 60 grams of fat!
2. New York: Garbage plate. The beginning of this dish has its roots at Rochester, N.Y. eatery Nick Tahou Hots, and dates 1918. The original dish had a mess of potatoes, beans, meat, onions, mustard, and sauce, but now the recipes vary and it can contain home fries, macaroni salad, baked beans or French fries, topped with choice of meat (hamburger, cheeseburger, hot dog, sausage, chicken tender, fish, fried ham), and drenched in mustard, onions, and hot sauce, which can get to about 3 pounds of food. How much fat? As much as 203 grams!!!
3. North Carolina: Livermush. It does, it does look at bad as it sounds! However, locals have fallen head-over-heels for the fatty fare, even celebrating an annual Livermush Expo. What it contains is pig liver, assorted other pig parts (usually fatty), cornmeal, pepper, salt, which bring to the table an amount of 30 grams of fat.
4. North Dakota: Fleischkuechle. You may not know what it means, but German immigrants know for sure.

Well, a beef hot dog drenched in yellow mustard, onions, celery salt, and ground-beef sauce which bring to the table around 28 grams of fat, plus the additional quantity given by the fatty sauce.
10. South Carolina: Turducken. If you want a real Thanksgiving meal, go and buy a Turducken, which is a turkey stuffed with a duck stuffed with a chicken. Weird combination, huh?
