Good food from small towns

In the past few weeks, iReport and CNNMoney asked our readers in the U.S. to submit photos and descriptions of local dishes. At the same time, everyone had the opportunity to vote for their favorite submissions and spread the word about our quest to find America's favorite meals. Over the course of four weeks, we received over seventy submissions and almost 10,000 people voted for their favorites.

 

We did this with CNNMoney to put together a list of the best small towns in the nation, and of course, to find the hidden gastronomical gems in America. And that we did! Just look at this diamond in the rough: Rochester, New York's garbage plates.

 

 

Sadly, Rochester's delicacy received less than 30 votes (surprising or not, you decide). On the other side of the spectrum, one town reigned supreme by popular choice: Seguin, Texas and its Tex-Mex grub. The first runner-up, chile relleno from Seguin's Taqueria El Charro Tapatio, received almost 3,500 votes. Delicioso!

 

 

Seguin, Texas is a little town in the Texas Hill Country, located some thirty miles east of San Antonio, Texas. Known for it's robust pecan industry and the fun tubing excursions in its stretch of the Guadalupe River, Seguin is also home to our poll's number-one-pick, the dish low-cal Tex-Mex from Su Casa Café, which received more than five thousand votes!

 

 

Doesn't it look tasty and healthy?

 

Check out the poll page over on CNNMoney and tell us what you think of the winners, the losers, and the dishes we missed.
