chicharrones rellenos

I decided to try and make some stuffed chicharrones, marrying two different puertorican recipes crackling chicken and plantain mofongo. I wrapped the mofongo in chicken skin making small sausages, I tied them and fried them up. They were interesting but I think I need to work on my seasonings. I shoved a mild red pepper in the one that came undone. It also needed a little something extra.

As I said the chicken skin turned out very crispy which I liked. The mofongo was a bit on the bland side unfortunately. This might work with something spicier, maybe a green chile + ground pork, or perhaps something sweet, guava and cheese.
