International Day of the Nacho has nothing to do with Cinco de Mayo so why are we talkin’ about it? Well, nachos are probably our single favorite snack in the world (besides pork rinds, of course). It’s probably why there’s an International Day of the Nacho on October 21. While you may think of nachos as having sprung from that special day in May, the truth is that nachos are a 20th-century dish. It turns out, the golden nacho cheese wasn’t even invented until the 1970’s! Looking for a special way to celebrate? We have just the right nacho recipe to share today (or any day) – especially when you use Southern Recipe Hot & Spicy Pork Rinds in place of the 3 corner chip.

Are you ready for the pigskin tailgate season? Well, you’re not if you don’t have at least a few recipes made with pig skins. Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered like a Nickel 40. Try any of these recipes to get the tailgating ball rolling:
It’s time for back-to-school and we ask the question, “Why do kids have all the fun”? Ahhh, as we reflect on the innocence from our playground youth, we long for the easy life of being a kid in school, again. Here are six ways to act like a grade school kid this month:
1. Skip the corporate briefcase! Dust off the backpack from the basement and proudly sling it over your shoulder. If you’re lucky you’ll find a stick of gum and a dried out Sharpie. Have nothing to put in the sack? Make friends by adding a few bags of Southern Recipe Cracklins.
If you don’t like bacon, stop reading now and admit yourself into the closest hospital, because something is clearly wrong.
Ok, all kidding aside, there are times you need a bacon fix and you don’t have time to fry up a batch – that’s where we come in. Southern Recipe pork rinds offer all that bacony flavor without greasy fingers. Yes, we do love bacon. In fact, we’re bacon’s southern brother, but here are a few reasons we’re better than bacon:
1. Portability– have you ever tried transporting bacon in your pocket? Those grease spots aren’t coming out any time soon.
2. Protein– with 9 grams of protein, pork rinds are a great post workout snack. And although bacon is pretty respectable on protein, it crumbles in the gym – literally.
Did you know 98% of all the food and household goods you buy made it to you because of a truck driver? It’s true!
Help us give a shout out to these Road Warriors of the Interstate so they don’t go unnoticed! Celebrate Truck Driver Appreciation Week all month long by entering our Pedal to the Kettle sweepstakes. It’s easy to enter! Visit porkrinds.com and vote for your favorite truck driver pork rind recipe for a chance to WIN $2,000 and a year’s supply of our Southern Recipe pork rinds! Vote each day to increase your chances of winning.
What’s your favorite dog? Wait, let’s rephrase that … what is your favorite hot dog? Whether it’s Cincinnati-style, Italian or even just a plain dog with brown mustard – there are just as many hot dog recipes out there as there are states in the Union.
And in light of National Hot Dog Month, we’ve looked for the most unique and appealing city dog recipes across the land to share … along with their perfect Southern Recipe pork rind pairings (of course).
Baltimore – soft bun with fried bologna wrapped around a fried hot dog and mustard.
Cleveland – kielbasa in a bun (it’s technically not a hot dog, but we’re giving Cleveland a pass), french fries, hot sauce and cole slaw. Southern Recipe Salt & Vinegar Pork Rinds hit the mark … and then some.
Chicago – poppy seed bun, pickle spear, celery salt, tomatoes, pickled peppers, chopped onions, relish, and mustard. There’s a lot going on here, stay with a complementing flavor like Southern Recipe Original Pork Rinds.
Kansas City – sesame seed bun, sauerkraut and melted Swiss cheese. We recommend a little heat, try Southern Recipe Hot & Spicy to take it up a notch.
Denver – hot dog in a bun, chopped red onion, green chile sauce, sour cream and chopped jalapenos.
