Pork rinds are a low-carb snack that are made from the fried or roasted skin of a pig. Deep frying the rind turns it puffed and crunchy. Before it is cooked, it is called a pellet. The end result is similar to a crisp. Pork rinds are high in fat, calories and salt. Pork rinds can be purchased plain or with different added seasonings, including barbecue and chilli powder. The microwave pork rind claims to have fewer calories than the traditional version. They are easy to fix and are often served warm.

Things you need
- Pork skin (pellets)
Purchase microwaveable pork rinds at most major grocery stores. You can find them in the snack aisle near the popcorn. They are also packaged similar to popcorn. The pellets come pre-cut and pre-seasoned in large bags or in microwave bags.
Place the desired amount of pork skin into a paper lunch sack.
Fold the top of the bag over to seal the inside. This will prevent the contents from popping out during heating.
Lay the paper bag in the microwave on its side and close the door.
Cook the skin for approximately 1 1/2 minutes. You might have to adjust the time by 10 to 20 seconds, depending on the wattage of your microwave.
