Ingredients

  • 4 ounces plain pork rinds, crushed (113 g)
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt optional
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened (113 g)
  • 6 large eggs*** (cold) see note
  • 1/2 cup water (113 ml/ 118 g)

Instructions

  1. Food Processor Method: Place the pork rinds in a food processor and process until they become a fine powder. Add the baking soda and salt and give it a little pulse to mix. Add the eggs and cheese and process until smooth and thick. Add the water and blend until all of the ingredients are completely incorporated. Pour into a bowl and let sit for 5-10 minutes until the batter thickens to the consistency of cream of wheat.
  2. Hand Mixer Method: Put the pork rinds into a large zip-loc bag and crush in batches with a rolling pin or the smooth side of a meat mallet. They should be completely pulverized into a powder. Place the pulverized pork rinds into a medium bowl and stir in the baking soda and salt. In a smaller bowl, blend the cream cheese with one egg until combined and smooth. Add another egg and mix. Add the egg and cheese mixture to the pork rind crumbs and add the rest of the eggs. Blend with the hand mixer until smooth. Add the water and mix until thoroughly combined. Let the batter sit for 5-10 minutes until the batter thickens to the consistency of cream of wheat.

Cooking

  1. Preheat a pancake griddle over medium heat. When hot, oil the griddle and then gently wipe-off the excess with a paper towel or spray with cooking spray.

  2. Using a 1/4 cup measure, pour the batter onto the skillet and spread into a 5 inch circle with the back of a spoon. Make it as thin as possible. I dip my spoon in water to prevent it from sticking to the batter. Having a cup of water nearby helps. Cook like you would a pancake. NOTE: You will need to thin the batter as it sits. Add 1 tbsp at a time as needed.

  3. Keep in the refrigerator up to a week or freeze with a piece of waxed paper between each wrap.

Recipe Notes

Make sure to spread the batter with a wet spoon or you will end up with a thick pancake that will not serve well as a wrap. Thin the batter with a little more water if you notice it getting a little too thick to spread easily.

**** I'm often asked how these wraps taste. I use plain pork rinds and think these wraps are very neutral in taste.

***If this recipe is too eggy for you the first time you make it, try using 3 whole eggs, 3 egg whites and 3 tablespoons of oil.

No, this recipe can not be made without the pork rinds. That's like making a bread recipe and then removing the flour. Try these alternative wraps, zucchini tortillas, and this savory crepe recipe.
