  • 1 package (1 pound) sliced bacon
  • 4 ounces uncooked chorizo or spicy bulk pork sausage
  • 2 ounces cream cheese, cubed
  • 32 pitted dates


  1. Cut each bacon strip in half. In a large skillet, cook bacon in batches over medium heat until partially cooked but not crisp. Remove to paper towels; drain drippings. Crumble chorizo into the same skillet; cook and stir until fully cooked. Drain. Stir in cream cheese.
  2. Carefully cut a slit in the center of each date; fill with cream cheese mixture. Wrap a piece of bacon around each stuffed date; secure with toothpicks. Place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 12-15 minutes or until bacon is crisp.
