What Are Pork Rinds?

A Southern-style snack, pork rinds (AKA chicharrones) are made from deep-fried pig skin. Commonly spotted at roadside gas stations and markets, they’re often shipped frozen and heated on-site. Pork rinds are crunchy and delightfully delicious and are a fave snack with those following a low-carb and keto diet.

Toss warmed pork rinds in any of your favorite chip flavor combinations like sea salt and vinegar, a spicy taco seasoning mix, or garlic powder and parmesan cheese, you can’t go wrong!
