- 1 Pyrex measuring cup

- Pour pork rinds into gallon Ziploc bag. Remove excess air and seal bag.
- Use rolling pin to grind pork rinds down to fine flour.
- Mix pork rind flour and shredded mozzarella in microwaveable bowl. Add cream cheese. Microwave on high for 1 minute to create a thick dough.
- Add raw egg, salt, and chili powder. Knead into dough with bare hands.
- Lay dough between 2 pieces of parchment paper and roll to a thin layer like an ultra thin pizza crust.
- Remove the top piece of parchment paper, slide the parchment paper & dough onto cookie sheet. Bake at 425F for 12 minutes, or until browned on top.

- Serve hot or let them rest at room temperature to crisp up further.

- Any brand of mozzarella, cream cheese, eggs, salt, and chili powder is fine.
