Mexican Chocolate Pie Con Churro Chip Crust

 

Unique, rich and a little spicy is the way I want to eat my Churro Cabo Chips.  Churro flavored Cabo Chips are great on their own, but it is fun to get a little creative with them. I ground them up, controlled myself from not devouring all the crumbs and made it into a piecrust! Add a delicious Mexican chocolate mouse to the dish and you have a beautiful pie ready for dinner! (I mean dessert.)

I’m not going to lie. I pulled out a beautiful pie after four hours of setting in the fridge and just had to say it, “#WifeMaterial!”
