Pork Rinds

Pork rind is pig skin. As a food, it customarily is cut into small pieces that are rendered, dried, and fried crisp to be served as a snack, like porky chips. Most often, they are vividly seasoned with pepper and other spices. In the South, especially Louisiana, they are called cracklins; in Mexican restaurants, they are chicharrones; in the U.K., they are pork scratchings.
