Pork Rind Nachos

These are not your average pork rinds out of a bag, I actually fried these myself with a product from Rudolph Foods and built the nachos from there.

The chocolate pork rinds were outrageous! They turned out even better than I expected. The cayenne is was really made the flavors come together! Thank you for checking it out!

Lucky for me, I have always had all of my blood tests come back wonderful (except for my low thyroid levels). My doctor has advised me that loosing the weight is my big deal, and that I can just count my carbs. I'm not saying that I would out, but I could have some, and pork rinds have no carbs.

Current research says that eating cholesterol doesn't raise blood cholesterol. Pork fat rules!

Speaking of pork rinds, we watched a street vendor in Mexico put together the most amazing looking "pizza" that the locals were all buying. She had a huge bag of brown rectangles on which she assembled each one. We ordered one, and it was amazing. The crust was thin, very light, and crunchy. After asking around, we figured out that the "pizza crust" was a big 8x10 sheet of pork rind! Gotta post the video sometime. Total cost: 20 pesos, or about $1.50.

Love the rinds. Don't even show me chocolate covered pork rinds....

My high cholesterol is hereditary as is my hypothyroidism. My diet doesn't seems to make much difference
Just have dodgy genes
I do try and eat relatively healthy though but I'm a sucker for anything with smoked pork or crackling

My cholesterol is only 9.3 at the moment
You are right though, what I eat doesn't seem to make a difference. I'm a sucker for crackling! Won't admit that I eat most of it off the pork before I serve it to hubby and kids
Just tell them it was a skinny pig!
