Can’t Rip This Dip!

Holy moly it’s National Guacamole Day! We all know this “mean and green” dip is made from avocados, but we bet you didn’t know the avocado is actually a “berry”.

Tweet: Mean and green, this is the dip that holds up to the bold taste of rindsMean and green, this is the dip that holds up to the bold taste of rinds! http://ctt.ec/oMU1e

Wait, the green stuff is not making you jump up and down? Then you gotta try this guac recipe from the south … of the border. And when you use our Hot & Spicy rinds as the dipper, you’ll add an extra flavor boost.

Got a guacamole recipe to share?  Send it. If we use it, you’ll get a month of pork rinds to dip.

Hey, did you say it was National Bacon Day?

Bacon. For many, just saying the word bacon brings tears of joy. It’s no wonder there’s a special National Bacon Day (well, truth be told, every day could be “bacon day”).

From chocolate dipped bacon and Cheesy Bacon Popcorn to Bacon Banana Bread and Bacon Oatmeal, this crunchy treat can be eaten almost everywhere.

Almost. Try pulling it out of your pocket at a ball game on an 80-degree day.

That’s where we come in. Pork rinds give you that bacony flavor without all that greasy mess. And the mighty rind can be used in recipes just like our crispy cousin. Whether it’s our recipe for Pork Rind Breaded Pork Chops or a hearty BLT Dip recipe, rinds hold up just fine. Bacon can have one day, we’ll take all the rest of the days.

You wouldn’t believe the gunk that’s hiding in our go-to summer meals. Let’s lighten up as much as a sunshiny day and take better care of ourselves with these amazing pork rind swap outs.

  • Fried, but not chicken of rinds– Fried Chicken can be made healthier with a crust of pork rinds. Use this simple recipe as a starting point and you’ll find grease is just a word and doesn’t belong in your body.
  • Pies of Pizza! This recipe takes the dough of America’s favorite call out meal and makes it a true wonder of better-for-you deliciousness. Gluten-free, reduced in calories, and packed full of protein, a pork rind pizza pie has a crunchy crust that delivers unique bacon flavor.
  • Chippy that’s Dippy- Make a difference to your nachos by dumping the tortilla chips and using pork rinds. You’ll find a lightness and crunch you didn’t have before, plus pork rinds can hold more of the good stuff! Here are some dip recipes we suggest making that will compliment our rinds wonderfully.

Slim down this summer with Southern Recipe. Check out our recipe and Pinterest page for more swap out ideas.

Make Your BBQ Go Boom!


This is the month of freedom and we’re celebrating our independence!

Southern Recipe asks, “Why not make it more significant?” Let’s break away from “not good for us” snacks and take back your independence for good snacking.

Our pork rinds can help you get there.

Tweet: Make this your month of independence from bad snacking! @SouthernRecipe will blaze the way brighter than lady liberty!Make this your month of independence from bad snacking! @SouthernRecipe will blaze the way brighter than lady liberty! http://bit.ly/2eMLr1L http://ctt.ec/n4233

Pork rinds really are a power snack that’s a gluten-free, zero carb, and low-calorie crunch. You can’t go wrong with our delicious little beauties. Here are a few things you are better off not eating so you can keep leaner than an on-duty Marine.

  • If your popcorn is floating, so will you– Popcorn can be loaded with butter. Butter in moderation is good but if a package is labeled as “mega-butter”, “lots-o-butter” or “Butter BUTTER!”, stay away. If you need the fix butter provides, try protein packed rinds. You’ll be satisfied without expanding your boxers.
  • Mr. Potato Head– Potato chips are something we should all avoid. Who wants greasy, calorie-filled, yellow tubers when you can have light, airy, melt-in-your-mouth, cooked-with-real-love, pieces of heavenly protein? Unlike spuds, we don’t mess with your blood sugar. Eat and be merry and don’t eat something that’s buried under the ground.
  • Cracked for sure– Crackers are not your friends. They’re little circles and squares of culinary bad news and hate. Crackers are filled with refined flour, hydrogenated oils and high-fructose corn syrup. There are better American ingredients that will keep you soaring with the eagles. Lighten up and let’s eat with the dignity our forefather’s expected! Pork rinds are your answer!

Southern Recipe will fly the stars and stripes over bad snacking and let you rise above the common snack! Your Uncle Sam won’t just be proud, but your whole family too.

Flavor Fireworks!


Southern Recipe loves the Fourth of July! There’s nothing like gathering with friends, family and neighbors to celebrate our independence. The red, white and blue BBQ is as serious to us as George Washington crossing the Delaware.

When your get-together gets going, make sure your flavors are spot on. Let’s talk pork rinds and which to feed your hungry firework-loving crowd.

Tweet: Our flavor fireworks make the BBQ better! Celebrate your independence with @SouthernRecipe! Our flavor fireworks make the BBQ better! Celebrate your independence with @SouthernRecipe! http://bit.ly/2eMLr1L http://ctt.ec/baS2C

Fireworks shouldn’t be the only things exploding during your Fourth of July party. Your flavors should be just as bold as a Revolutionary War solider. Southern Recipe has a rind to fit everyone’s taste.

  • The working man’s rind– Our Salt and Vinegar Pork Rind may seem Plain Jane at first but there’s something more going on below the surface. The yum is there in spades. This is more than just a utility snack; it’s a necessity that keeps America moving. Just like today’s modern worker, Salt and Vinegar Pork Rinds keep America moving.
  • Light it up– Our Hot and Spicy Pork Rinds can light the fuse on your Fourth of July food fireworks. We love these just about as much as we love freedom. Up the ante on your taste buds and wake everyone up with the Hot and Spicy boom of flavor.
  • America’s Favorite– And can we talk about our Original Rinds? These are what started it all and what the good old U.S.A. has consistently made number one year after year. They compliment a BBQ, make a great crust for grilling, and just have the snap that makes snacking fun. There’s nothing more American than our original rinds.

No matter what Southern Recipe flavor you bring to the BBQ, you’re celebrating the fourth with a true American legacy.

A Great Rind for the Great Outdoors!

camping-with-pork-rinds
We’re Americans. We love to travel. We love the outdoors. Naturally, we love camping.

It’s National Camping Month and there is no better way for Southern Recipe to celebrate than to get out to a campground and gather round the fire. And we’re not forgetting to take our pork rinds with us.

Let’s talk camp food. Yes, you have your s’mores and wieners, but why not make things better than best with easy-to-make pork rind deliciousness?

  • Not exactly skinny dipping– You almost don’t need a fire with this Warm and Creamy Bacon Dip recipe (but you probably should light something so you can cook it). Southern Recipe pork rinds are the perfect vehicle to get this goodness to your lips.
  • 3 Letters is all you need– BLT! This is a dip that the campfire just adds a nice bit of love too (and that “love” puts the “L” in this BLT). Cook this recipe at your own risk! Once everyone tastes it, you may have to make 7 more batches and never get away from the fire ring!
  • Tex-Mex it– Creamy lusciousness scooped up in a pork rind– that’s the only way we can describe this Hot Black Bean and Corn Dip. We think you may have found your new camping favorite. Seriously, it’s that good!

Get out and enjoy the great outdoors at Camp Pork Rind! Southern Recipe will be there with you!

A Tribute to the Top Hog

fathers-day-pork-rinds2
Dads are the best. It’s true. And that’s not just because a dad wrote this Southern Recipe blog.

As a tribute to our fathers, we thought we would share a few of their words of wisdom and acts of “kindness”. Kids may say and do the darnest things, but dads may have them beat!

Tweet: Dear old Dad is talking about #porkrinds and relationships. @SouthernRecipe says watch out!Dear old Dad is talking about #porkrinds and relationships. @SouthernRecipe says watch out! http://bit.ly/2eMLr1L http://ctt.ec/4OV7K

Dad encouraged our Southern Recipe habit, but he also left us scratching our head over a few things until we found out we could Google all the answers to our questions. If you’re a dad, don’t let that stop you explaining things in your very own unique way.

Dad is never wrong, unless Mom tells us so.

  • Dad can fix it– You hear the stories or may have experienced them yourself. A washer breaks, the tub needs resealed, that tree in the yard needs to come down. Who needs a repairman or tree cutter when Dad can fix it? Uh, you probably do. Dad may know that the whatchamacallit needs connected to the whammer jammer (which is too close to the hoobie joobie), but make sure the hospital is on your speed dial. When he tells you to “run!”, run with all your might and don’t look behind you!
  • pork-rind-wings

  • Watch what you eat– Besides your pals at Southern Recipe, Dad always know what’s good for you. That pie? Bad. You better give it to him to check. That cake? Terrible! Dad is going to have to be your taste tester. That super deluxe hamburger with everything? Yeah, that’s Dad’s too. It’s a good thing he’s watching out for you instead of his waistline.
  • The map isn’t the territory– Are we there yet? No, we aren’t. Dad’s keen sense of direction may not be as spot on as a hunting dog’s, but we may get there eventually if he would only stop for directions. But stopping isn’t an option- we’re on a one-way street in a bad part of town without stoplights. Two hours later, we’ve made it. It’s amazing how he always knows where he’s going even when he doesn’t.

Southern Recipe loves our Dads! Happy Father’s Day!!
