Recipe ideas for someone new to the US?

I have a new friend who moved to the Midwest from Ecuador who is also living on her own for the first time. She's very interested in the US and wants to learn more about the melting pot that is American cuisine.

Have you had similar experiences introducing someone to American cuisine? Or are you living in a foreign country and immersing yourself in their foods?

What are some simple recipes and ideas I could give her? Maybe recipes for two that are easy and budget friendly?
