So, what is pork rind?

Pork rind, commonly known as chicharrón, is a crispy and savory snack made from the skin of a pig. This delicious ingredient is created by frying the pork skin until it becomes golden brown and puffy, resulting in a satisfying crunch with every bite. Pork rind is a popular ingredient in Latin American cuisine, often used as a topping for soups, stews, tacos, and salads. It is also a low-carb and high-protein snack option, making it a favorite among those following a keto or paleo diet. With its irresistible texture and rich flavor, pork rind is a versatile ingredient that can elevate any dish.
