The Super Bowl, as I’m sure you know by now, is the most watched televised event in the United States. People across the country will be flipping on their cable boxes and tuning in for some good ol’ American fun. Last year, 111 million people watched the New England Patriots take home the title.

It’s thrilling to consider, that many people partaking in the same activity at the same time. Over the course of a few hours, so many of us are united, bound by the television’s glow. For all this talk of collectivity, however, we are still a nation divided: I’m talking about Super Bowl foods. As people prepare for their Sunday night parties, Google has been amassing all the data from food-related searches and put together this list of the most popular Super Bowl snacks by state.

The spread is impressive. Chili comes in as the nation’s most popular recipe, topping the list in 10 states, while other recipes appear only once and feel particularly localized, like Arizona’s green chicken enchiladas or Rhode Island’s baked ziti.
