I made this for Thanksgiving once and now my family wants it all the time. My only suggestion is to use the larger dates This is delicious !

Awesome!! This was a great hit as a Thanksgiving appetizer. I'm not a fan of jalapeños so I was so excited to find this great take on the "stuffed jalapeño" dish. Thanks!
