Chicken Taco Cheesecake

READY IN: 1hr 25mins
Recipe by Lynda Black

Found this several years ago I believe in Southern Living Cookbook. Made it last year for a cook off at my work and won 1st place. The presentation is impressive when you place the toppings in a circle around the cheesecake. I usually start with a center mound of picante and add other toppings around this. Not as hard as it sounds.
