Let the chicharron soften a bit in the salsa for a few minutes then they are ready to serve!

I really like to serve these with refried black beans and warm corn tortillas.

I like to make a chicharron taco. It’s so good. Just add some of the chicharron to the center of a warm corn tortilla. Then fold and eat like a taco.

The beans pair perfectly with the chicharrones and the flavor of the corn tortillas do so as well.

The tortillas do a great job at sopping up any leftover salsa or beans left on the plate.
