Chorizo-Filled Dates Wrapped in Bacon

Prep Time: 15 mins | Cook Time: 20 MIN | Makes: 24 | Difficulty: Easy


  • 1 link Aurelia's Spanish chorizo sausage (about 2 ounces)
  • 24 Medjool dates, pitted
  • 12 slices of bacon, halved crosswise


1. Slice the chorizo crosswise in thirds. Halve each piece lengthwise, then cut each half into 4 lengthwise strips to make a total of 24 small sticks.

2. Tuck a chorizo stick into each date and pinch the dates closed. Wrap a strip of bacon around each date and secure with a toothpick.

3. Place the wrapped dates in a large skillet, seam sides down, and sauté, turning, until the bacon is browned on all sides, about 10 minutes. Drain on paper towels and serve hot.
