Chorizo Stuffed Dates Wrapped in Bacon-img_7864-jpg

I recently made these and not only are they really, REALLY easy to prepare, but they are SO GOOD! I took this picture of them as I was prepping but forgot to take a picture of the final product. Oh well. Trust me and make them anyways!

This recipe is adapted from one I found on Food and Wine dot com.


1 small Spanish Chorizo (this is the "hard" kind, not the soft which is known as Mexican chorizo)
(casing removed)

24 Medjool Dates, pitted

12 slices of bacon, halved


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper
Slice the chorizo into 24 small pieces; stuff each pitted date with one piece of chorizo. Wrap the date in half a slice of bacon and secure with a toothpick.
Place the dates on the baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature.
