One of my favorite snack foods happens to be pork rinds; so, I just had to try this recipe. The ones that you get from the store do not have as much flavor as these delicious pork rinds do. I ate so many of them I thought I gained 10 pounds in one sitting. Incredible 5 star recipe I can use anytime I want a snack.
