Tocino, literally bacon in Spanish, is a type of cured pork product that is like a cross between bacon and chorizo. Pork tocino can be made with either pork shoulder or pork belly: shoulder is intensely flavorful and less greasy while belly yields a product that is similar to conventional bacon. Pork tocino is cured with a plethora of different spices to achieve its signature crimson hue and flavor. Tocino is ubiquitous as a breakfast food in the Phillipines paired with eggs.
Uses: Fry tocino over medium heat until golden brown.
