DIRECTIONS

  • In a medium (dry) skillet on medium heat add the pork cracklins (chicharrones). Lightly fry them just so that they get warmed (about 2 minutes). Set aside.
  • In a medium sized bowl beat the eggs.
  • Add the butter or margarine to the skillet and melt.
  • Add the beaten eggs.
  • When the eggs are slightly done add the warm pork cracklins and gently fold into the eggs.
  • Once the eggs are about done add the salsa. He said his mom uses a mild homemade salsa that she canned over the summer but a good store bought salsa would work well too. The more watery it is the better (in this particular recipe). You want the cracklins to absorb the salsa and become moist.
  • If needed you can add a tiny bit of water just in case your salsa wasn't "watery" enough.
  • When done. Scoop the huevos con chicharrones into the tortillas and garnish with shredded cheese and additional salsa and cilantro if desired.
