Here is the recipe for
New Mexican Apple Pie

                             For a 9 inch pie
6 cups peeled sliced apples
Granny Smith apples work great
  I prefer a mix of Grannys and Fuji or Galas

1/2 cup of flour
1/2 cup of sugar, white works fine but I prefer Turbinado
  2 Tbls cinnamon
1/2 tsp of dried ground ginger
1/2 tsp fresh ground nutmeg
2 oz of fresh lemon juice
2 oz of hot green chili
2 oz of pinon nuts (pine nuts)
egg wash 1 egg and 2 oz of water
2 Tbls of turbinado sugar

Mix all ingredients well in a bowl
and let them sit for 20 minutes to meld
fill the bottom crust and cover with a full top crust
poke the top crust with a fork to vent
brush with an egg wash
sprinkle the top with turbinado sugar
bake in a 375 degree oven for 1 to 1 1/2 hours
turn the pie every 20 minutes to get an even
 golden brown  
and look for thick bubbles of juices from the vent holes
I suggest a scoop of Vanilla ice cream
or whipped cream
share with good people and enjoy
