So, what is manteça de cerdo?

Manteça de cerdo, also known as pork lard, is a versatile and flavorful ingredient used in many traditional dishes. It is made by rendering the fat from the pig's belly or back, resulting in a pure white solid that can be used for cooking, baking, or frying. With its high smoke point, manteça de cerdo is perfect for frying crispy foods like chicharrones or empanadas, and it adds richness and depth to baked goods like biscuits or pie crusts. Additionally, it is a popular ingredient in Mexican cuisine, where it is used to make tamales and refried beans.
