Brew-Ha-Ha Over These Pork Rind Snacks

beer and pork rind recipes

Aren’t you just about done with the craft brewery craze? It seems a new “tasting room” opens up weekly. Don’t get us wrong, we love the beer. It’s just the inconvenience (and cost) of actually stopping in and throwing back a cold one … or two.

That’s why the company with the best-tasting pork rind snacks (that would be us) is supporting National Home Brewing Day. Nothing goes better with our rinds than a glass full of homemade happiness.

Like the idea of making your own “fancy” beer but really like the domestic brew you get from the grocery store? Let us help you dress up your next beer bash with a few recipes made with Southern Recipe Pork Rinds.

Sauer Brew Hot Balls – mix up sauerkraut, cream cheese and roll the mixture into – you got it – balls. Coat them with crushed Southern Recipe Hot & Spicy pork rinds and bake for a few minutes. Nothing sauer about this recipe.

Finger-Lickin’ Pork Rind Chicken – boneless chicken breast diced, dipped in eggs and rolled in Southern Recipe Original flavored pork rinds. These chicken nuggets just grew up.

Bean Beer Cheese Dip – what brew goes with our beer cheese dip? The question is, what beer doesn’t? A classic cheese dip with a few secret additions – bring home the rinds for a powerful dipper.

Bust Your Bracket, Not Your Waistline

Fact: Most Americans will double their daily calories while watching their favorite (or not so favorite) college basketball team play during March Madness. The average round ball watcher will consume 2,400 calories per game! And, when you add up games watched in rounds one and two, that adds up to … well, we don’t want to do the math … but you get the picture.

Hey, we know it’s hard to stop munching – especially, when you have a bag of Hot & Spicy rinds in front of you and your brackets are constantly going bust – but we have two tips to keep your waistline in check from tipoff to final buzzer.

1. It’s called “distracted eating.”  Researchers found that people who are preoccupied with something (like the 3-pointer at the half time buzzer) will eat without enjoying their food. Simple, but effective, s-l-o-w down and enjoy the food! Put smaller portions in front of you at all times.  There are plenty of commercial breaks to run to the kitchen for more.

2. Make your food choices a little harder to eat. Try this fresh Sweet Georgia Salsa recipe with the larger diced tomatoes, black beans and onions – so chunky, you’ll need to concentrate on getting a mouthful instead of a lapful. Make sure you use Southern Recipe pork rinds as your go-to scooper.

Can’t pry yourself away from the games? Order your favorite pork rinds online and get ’em delivered to your front door. March on mighty rind lover!

It’s Time to Meeta for a ‘Rita

pork rinds and margaritas

You know what they say, one Margarita isn’t enough, two margaritas are too much, three margaritas are not enough. Whoa, clink your glasses it’s National Margarita Day! We know you’ll celebrate responsibly, so here are a few recipes that complement this lime green monster.

1. Nachos anyway but loose – it’s the bacony crunch of pork rinds you love mixed with shredded beef and pulled pork. Try these two different recipes that use our Hot & Spicy pork rinds as a base instead of boring tortilla chips … nacho bad.

2. Bean there but haven’t done this – the secret ingredient in this Mexican BBQ Beans recipe? A handful of crushed Salt & Vinegar pork rinds mixed with the beans. This recipe will light a fire at any party!

3. It’s summer somewhere – turn down the thermostat, it’s time for a Hot Summer Salsa recipe that scoops all other salsas … especially when you scoop it up with our Original flavored pork rinds.

4. Skip the kitchen and pick up a bag of our Cheesy Jalapeño Curls – ok, you’ve tasted and loved all of the best pork rinds Southern Recipe has to offer, now let’s turn to a totally different snack. Our real cheese curls are oven baked with a burst of spicy jalapeño … there’s nothing like a little heat that tastes great with any flavor of margarita.

Don’t Mock the Guac

pork rinds and guacamoleJust like the Incredible Hulk, the mighty avocado is a softy inside. This monster of fruit – that’s right we said fruit – is one superfood. When it comes to benefits: high potassium (helps in maintaining blood pressure) and Vitamin B5 (helps convert the food you eat into energy), Southern Recipe pork rinds pair well because of our high protein and low carbs. You could say we’re a couple of mean, green power snack foods.

And in honor of National Guacamole Day, we would like to make it easy to get your avocado on with this rind dippin’ guacamole recipe.
