  • Heavy-bottomed stockpot
  • Slotted spoon


For serving optional

  • Limes
  • Chile-lime seasoning
  • Chamoy
  • Valentina


  • Heat ~½-inch neutral vegetable oil in a large pot over medium (the oil should be approximately 350-375°F).
  • Once you think the oil is ready, test a pinwheel to see if it starts to puff up within a few seconds. If it does, cook the chicharrones de harina in batches for 45-60 seconds, stirring frequently.
  • Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil. Continue this process with as many as you’d like to eat.
  • Serve your pinwheels with a sprinkle of chile-lime seasoning, lime juice, hot sauce, or chamoy. Happy eating!


  • These can also be made in an air-fryer or microwave if you'd prefer a low or oil-free option.
  • Make sure you purchase chicharrones de harina as there is another type of chicharrones made from pork.
