  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 2 cups finely ground, salted tortilla chips (about 300g bag)
  • 1 pkg instant chocolate pudding
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup peanut butter
  • 1 tsp chili powder (optional)
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
  • 1 tub frozen whipped topping, defrosted and divided
  • 2 tbsp coffee liquor
  • 1 cup coarsely crushed tortilla chips
  • 1/3 cup beer nuts, crumbled

Preheat oven to 350F. Melt butter and sugar together. In a large bowl, pour melted butter and sugar over ground tortillas; mix until fully combined. Press into a 9-inch pie plate. Bake for 12-15 minutes. Allow to cool completely.

Meanwhile, prepare filling. In a food processor, combine pudding mixture with milk, peanut butter, 1 cup whipped topping, chili powder and cinnamon until smooth. Transfer into cooled pie crust; smooth top. Cover and refrigerate until set, about 6 hours or overnight.

Whisk whipped topping and coffee liquor together until smooth. Spread over pudding filling. Garnish with tortilla chips, beer nuts and chocolate shavings before serving.
