Spicy Bacon Wrapped Dates

Ingredients

  • 3 to 4 Hatch Green Chilies or a can of your favorite green chili
  • 2 pounds Colorado bacon

Directions

Special equipment: 35 to 40 toothpicks

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

Dice green chilies. Stuff each date with a tsp of green chili (more if you like it hot). Wrap each date with half a piece of bacon and secure with a toothpick.

Bake, turning the dates halfway through so the bacon is evenly cooked, 15 to 18 minutes. Serve warm or at room temperature.
