Microwave Pork Fat. Yummy!

I cannot find these here in the USA because I am sure that the FDA thinks they are some secret weapon akin to the swine flu meant to wipe out all civilization. Regardless, they are tasty (not as tasty as fresh chicharron) fun, cheap and easy. I bet if someone made a commercial about them it would have a disclaimer 2 minutes long. Oh well, reason 66 that we are moving to Mexico. Pork Fat Rules!


  1. I second your feelings. Hooray for pork fat!!!

  2. Heehee...Good thing that I don't have a microwave! I love chicharrones!

  3. Lelsie and Theresa:
    It take confident women to admit that we like chicharones. Kinda like ABBA, if people tell me they dont like ABBA music, well I just think their liars...LOL.

  4. Guess what? Chicharrones contain as much protein as they do fat--they're perfect for low-carbohydrate eating!
