    1. Hummus and tamales.

    I'm gonna catch hell for this but...hummus on tamales. Try it once and you'll never eat them the same way again. Lo siento abuela, pero it's so good.


    2. Strawberries and black pepper.

    Strawberries and pepper. Sounds weird but it genuinely does work. The pepper somehow enhances the flavour of the strawberries?️


    3. Churros and sour cream.

    A warm churro with sour cream! I accidentally got sour cream on my churro once, but the cold creaminess of the sour cream worked really well with the churro.


    4. French fries with ranch and maple syrup.

    Dip fries first in ranch then in syrup. It tastes best with restaurant ranch.


    5. Cheez-Its and Craisins.

    Peanut butter sandwiches with CHEETOS. Preferably crunchy PB with lightly toasted bread. Oh my gawd.


    7. Grilled cheese with peanut butter OR jelly/jam. Or maybe even both!

    Put peanut butter on your grilled cheese. You're welcome.

    If you are lucky enough to be at a fair/carnival that has funnel cake and a nacho stand, nacho cheese and funnel cake is amazing!

    Popcorn and honey mustard! Coworker introduced me to it (we get free popcorn where we work) and it’s amazing. Has to be the honey mustard sauce you get from a fast food place though. I tried it with my roommate’s grocery store honey mustard and it was awful.


    13. Cream cheese and pizza.

    My absolute favourite "weird" food combo is cream cheese on pizza. Like, you have the regular mozzarella and whatnot, it's just that you then spread on a layer of cream cheese. It's really popular in my home state and also I'm told in Nebraska, but it's so hard to find elsewhere.
