Recipe by Timothy H.

Johnny Appleseed would never of dreamed of this combo! But all the restaurants in New Mexico have it right.Green apple (Granny Smith) and green chiles make the perfect sweet-hot,all-american desert.Topped with ice cream.

Thanks AuntSana. It WAS a lot of work I thought too but soooooo worth it! Our new favourite dessert. I added frozen orange juice concentrate instead of grandmarnier, and lime ju. instead of vinegar second time I made this. The amt. of water scared me but it worked out and just a bit cooked over. I used jalapeno chilies. Moontan Master this is the BEST green chili apple pie recipe ever!
