Pork rinds are a standard snack for many low carbers. I only buy the plain ones because I find that as soon as manufacturers start getting creative with seasoning, they add sugar and therefore the carb count starts creeping up. So I decided to make my own BBQ ‘rub' and add it to some pork rinds to make a really tasty snack.
You might not think of them as carb free chips – but make a batch of these and then dip them into some sour cream – you'll soon be converted!
Note: This recipe uses the oven for a very short amount of time – so you may prefer to prepare this dish when you already have the oven for another purpose.
How to Make BBQ Pork Rinds – No Carb Chips
Spread a large bag of pork rinds onto a baking tray, and place in a preheated oven for just five minutes. This gives the rinds a chance to start releasing some of their oils, which in turn means that the seasoning is more likely to stick!
Update: One day I had a craving for these tasty BBQ pork rinds but only had those microwave packs of pork rinds. I cooked two packets, then tossed them with seasoning mix as listed in the regular recipe, plus some olive oil. It worked perfectly! And no oven needed!
While the rinds are baking, mix together paprika, dry mustard powder, dried oregano, onion powder, sweetener (I used Lakanto – get 20% off everything in the Lakanto store when you use coupon code SAFTC!), salt and black pepper. Place the hot pork rinds into a bowl and toss it with the seasoning mix.
Serve these BBQ Pork Rinds warm!!
Oh and in case you have any leftovers, let them cool and store in an airtight container.
