      Directions

      For the pie crust: For the crust you will cut the butter into the flour and salt until you have a sand-like consistency with pea-size lumps of butter. Add the cheese and toss gently. Slowly add water 1 tablespoon at a time until you have a rough dough. Form the dough into a disc, wrap and chill.

      Roll out the chilled dough and place in a 9-inch pie pan. Crimp the edges.

      Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.

      For the filling: Combine the apples, chiles, white sugar, cornstarch, brown sugar, cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, salt and lemon juice in a large bowl. Mix well and pour into the pie crust.

      For the walnut streusel: Combine the flour, walnuts and sugar. Add the butter and mix until crumbly. Sprinkle on top of the pie filling.

      Bake 10 minutes. Turn the oven down to 375 degrees F and bake 40 minutes longer. When juices are bubbling you know the pie is done.

      Cool and enjoy!!!

        I made this pie following the recipe exactly. It was AWESOME. Don't worry if the green chiles seem too spicy before adding them to the pie, the heat lessens as they cook, and the spicy nature adds to the awesomeness of this pie.

        I made this after watching the episode where the pie was shown and followed what the guys over at Chile Pies and Ice Cream did which was serve it with vanilla ice cream and a honey-red chile flake drizzle. The added heat from the honey and red chile flake takes this pie over the top!
