The Phoenix-based Macayo's restaurant chain started a petition to make the chimichanga Arizona's first recognized state food. Word has it that the chain's founder accidentally dropped a burrito into the deep fryer in 1946, and it's been a Southwestern favorite ever since. It makes sense, given the state's proximity to the Mexican state of Sonora, which is known for its wheat flour tortillas.
