    the80srule's Note:

    American as apple pie, but not as traditional! It's simple to make, and quite tart but tempered by the brown sugar...and kicked up a notch by these secret ingredients! The color this turns is also so cool too. Feel free to use a homemade spice blend and your own homemade pie crust or a storebought one (like those double-crust kits to bake on both the top and bottom.) Snickerdoodle cookie dough also makes a neat lattice on this!

    1. 1
      Wash and core the apples, and cut them into regular segments. Make sure that all pits, stems, seeds, and seed pods have been removed.
    2. 2
      Put the apple pieces into a heavy-bottomed saucepan (a must for easy dispersion with the brown sugar) along with the can of chiles, liquid and all,on medium heat.
    3. 3
      Add the brown sugar. It's okay if it's lumpy or hard because it's going to melt.
    4. 4
      Stir around until the sugar is mostly dissolved.
    5. 5
      Spice the mixture to your liking, preferably a teaspoon or two of apple pie spice and 1/4-1/2 tsp red cayenne -- more if you dare!
    6. 6
      Add the cornstarch and stir in well.
    7. 7
      Keep the heat on low and let simmer for about 5 minutes, and stir well again, it should have a nice thick glue-like consistency.
    8. 8
      Pour into the pie shell and pat down evenly. Add a lattice or top crust, bake at 400F for 15-20 minutes after topping.

      This is Delish !!! The only way to possibly improve this one is to serve it with a wedge of sharp cheddar cheese.
