- Medjool dates, as many as you desire
Cut a slit in the date and remove pit. Stuff each date with a piece of chorizo. Close the date and wrap with bacon. Secure with a toothpick, seam side down. Use a non-stick frying pan to fry the dates. Do not add any oil to the pan. Fry till to your desired crispiness. I like mine very crispy so I will fry, turning on its sides till desired doneness.
Variations: You can also stuff the dates with blue cheese and wrap with bacon and bake at 425° for 15 mins. You can also stuff the dates with blue cheese and a slice of pickled jalapeño pepper, wrap with prosciutto, jam on and bake 350° in oven for a few minutes till warm. Another variation is to stuff the date with dark chocolate and bake in the oven till warm, or wrap a bacon around the date and bake at 425° till crisp. Use your imagination to come up with your own variation.
Alternatively, use fresh figs and do not bake but use prosciutto or jamon to wrap the figs.
