Santa Fe Cheesecake

Recipe by Claire de Luna

A delicious savory appetizer, to serve with tortilla chips and salsa. This recipe will serve a large number because it is rich and a little goes a long way. I sometimes make half a recipe and bake it in a 6-inch springform pan for a smaller party. Heated, this makes an awesome dip for the fondue pot.
