    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.

    Prep time: 10 minutes
    Cooking time: 15 minutes
    Serves 4 to 6

    Here's what you'll need:

    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

    Make it!

    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.
