"I never worked with chorizo before. It's a difficult texture to stuff in the date. Also I couldn't tell when it was cooked or not. So some were over cooked. But overall very tasty for the spicy/sweet food lover."

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
1 small Spanish chorizo sausage; (about 2 ounces), casing removed
24 Medjool dates; pitted
12 slices bacon; halved crosswise

Original recipe makes 24

Servings  

Preparation

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.

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.

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

Notes

This timeless tapa from Spanish cookbook author Penelope Casas has everything going for it?it?s sweet, smoky and savory, all in one bite.

First try is with smoked sausage. We'll see how it turns out.
