Chimayo Chicharr贸nes Recipe

If you’re a chicharr贸nes fanatic, or just pork in general (the other white meat), then you know that adding a little bit of spice is almost the golden rule. This recipe is super simple and super good. I can’t tell you how easy it is to make a meal out of them (although I try not to).

  • 1 pound pork belly (cut into 1 inch cubes)
  • 1/2 cup Chimayo Red Chile Powder
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon salt


In a large mixing bowl, add pork belly, garlic powder, Chimayo聽red chile powder, and salt. Mix with hands thoroughly to make sure all meat is covered well with the chile mixture. Wash hands with dish soap (to make sure chile聽is completely washed off).

Cook pork belly in its own grease at a med-high temperature till crispy. Transfer to plate with napkin or towel to absorb any excess grease. Enjoy!
