They are made with rendered pork fat and flour. The first picture is the chicharrones in their dried form (about a quarter size), very much like dried pasta with redish hue,also little bit resembels like some sort of orange candy.
Second picture is the chicharrones after 10 seconds in the fryer. Light and airy with the flavor remindful of pork rinds. Now i am Imagine the possibilities if we can make the same dried dough formula with duck fat or shortrib fat.....Duck chicharrones with hoisin BBQ sauce and toasted coriander.How about that?
You can buy this snack at Mexican Market in Mount Pleasant( Right before 7 eleven) $1.99 a bag just fry them like frying fries and watch the magic quarter size dry pasta thingy tings will be like saucer size in 10 sec.great with hot sauce and lime juice...
PS.Do not fry more than 10 chicharrones at a time ,they will be 10 times bigger and overflow.
