Heat a small frying pan.

Cut the chorizo in to ½ cm strips, the length of the date.

Fry gently in the frying pan no oil is needed.

Once nice and crisp remove and cool.

Place a strip of chorizo in all the opened dates.

Lay a slice of air-dried ham on a chopping board.

Place the date at one end and roll up.

You may only need half a slice of ham to wrap just one and a half times.

Repeat until all are done.

When ready to eat heat a non-stick frying pan and add a couple of tablespoons of any oil.

Place the wrapped dates in the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes gently.

Turnover and cook for a further 2-3 minutes.

Serve warm.
