Who doesn’t love bacon and chicharon? Granted, this might be going against your healthy diet regimen, if any. But once in a while, on cheat-day weekends, you can indulge yourself (and maybe hubby, too!) with this ultimate mouth-watering snack. Serve it with spiced vinegar to balance the richness.
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.
