Additional information

The origin of the Chicharrón de Chancho recipe is diffuse and ancient. According to certain historical data, originated in Santo Domingo, in the region of Isabela and Ozuma, where the Spanish raised pigs for consumption.

In our country, it is said that it was brought by the Spanish colonization. The Spanish were the ones who introduced the pig to Peru, and the slaves raised it for later consumption. No part of the animal was left unused.

The indigenous people baptized this animal as cuchi, immediately adopting it in the preparation of several of our traditional dishes and being a main ingredient in many. It is accompanied with typical Peruvian products, such as sweet potatoes, potatoes, corn , etc.

Currently this dish is very popular in Peru, thanks to its delicious flavor, crunchy texture, and quick preparation. I remember countless afternoons in which I ate a delicious bread with pork rinds, so distinctive of our lands.
