Servings 8


  • 8 apples, peeled and cubed (Gala, Fuji, Honeycrisp, or Golden Delicious)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice (juice from about 1 lemon)
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup green chiles, roasted and chopped (either fresh or canned)
  • 8 tbsp butter, grated
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded


  • Preheat oven to 350 F degrees. Butter an 8×8 baking dish. Set aside
  • In a mixing bowl, add apples, lemon juice, granulated sugar, cornstarch, ground cinnamon, and green chiles. Stir to combine, then transfer to the prepared baking dish.
  • In a separate mixing bowl, combine butter, flour, brown sugar, oats, and salt. Using a wooden spoon, or clean hands, mix until well combined. Fold in the cheddar cheese.
  • Crumble the topping over the apples in the baking dish.
  • Bake 45-55 minutes, until topping is golden brown and apples are fork tender.
  • Serve warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.


  • Green chiles can vary in their heat intensity. You can easily adapt this recipe to suit your taste. Use more green chiles if they’re mild and less if they’re hot.

  • Prior to baking, the apples and topping will be mounded significantly in the baking dish, but will bake down.
  • I would recommend placing a baking sheet under the baking dish to catch any drips that may bubble over.
