My only problem with the pie is that there was too much filling for the 9 inch, deep dish pie. It overflowed and created quite the mess. I am not impressed with "Tenderflake" pie crusts at the moment. I double-checked that they were deep dish 9" pie crusts. Warning to Canadians, who use Tenderflake deep dish 9" pre-made crusts, to divide this pie filling between two pie shells. DH is raving about the pie, and he hates pecan pie. Next time I would be tempted to 1/2 the chocolate chips and see if he notices. I felt like the chocolate overwhelmed the other flavours, and that is why I would reduce the amount next time. But, I give it 5 stars because DH loves it. Also, because it reminds me of living down south.

Just roll me over and put me face down in this pie. Geez it was sooooo good. Next time I'm going to double up and make 2 pies and put one back for me, all mine and no one elses! Thanks for sharing this yummy dessert.

Without a doubt, the best pecan pie ever! I tweaked the recipe a bit by lightly toasting the pecans to bring to out the flavor. I used a block of Ghiradelli chocolate, broken into chunks to equal one cup, and used Makers Mark bourbon. The piecrust was home make using a combination of butter and lard and partially blind baked so the crust would remain flakey. My family loved the pie and I took one to work - everyone raved about it! Thanks, NurseDi for this great recipe!
