  • 1 tablespoon ground ancho chili
  • 1 tablespoon kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika

After 6 hours, take the pork belly and chop them up into 1-2 inch pieces.

Heat a skillet to medium-high heat with 2 teaspoons of vegetable oil. Fry the pork belly until golden brown and the fat has rendered and crisped up. You may have to do this is two batches. Do not overcrowd your pan, or it will not brown nicely.
