Two pork favorites-bacon and the local chicharon-in one indulgent, crunchy treat? We're game! Remember to serve these with spiced vinegar to balance the richness.

 

BACON CHICHARON

 

vegetable oil, for frying

1 tablespoon brown sugar

2 teaspoons chili powder

salt, to season

1/2 cup cornstarch

4 teaspoons baking powder

1 teaspoon ground pepper

12 strips thick-cut bacon, sliced into 3-inch lengths

 

 

1 Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat.

 

2 Combine brown sugar, chili powder, and salt in a bowl. Set aside.

 

3 Combine cornstarch, baking powder, and ground pepper in a bowl. Lightly dredge bacon in mixture until completely coated.

 

4 Fry bacon until crisp and golden, about 2 to 3 minutes on each side. Make sure bacon strips are completely submerged in oil but remain flat on the pan. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate.

 

5 Sprinkle with sugar mixture. Serve immediately.
