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