As the year draws to a close, Google published its annual “Year in Search” report, which details the most searched terms on Google in 2022 – including a section specifically highlighting the most searched receipts over the past year.
The most searched recipe of 2022 was “sugo,” an Italian tomato sauce usually made with tomatoes, garlic, basil and olive oil.
Place #2 was “Cincinatti-style chili,” which offers a sweeter taste compared to the traditional chili pepper with spices like cinnamon, nutmeg and sometimes even cocoa powder. The search term got a big bump in February when the Cincinnati Bengals took on the Los Angeles Rams in the Super Bowl.

The dish achieved recipe status viral thanks to TikTok, with more than 59 million views of #MarryMeChicken videos. It was the latest a long list of chicken recipes which, according to modern legend, can inspire commitment in relationships.
