"Ready, Set, Cook! Hidden Valley Contest Entry" This savory little cheesecake will be a hit at your next party. The zesty jalapeño and rich cream cheese are a perfect blend of flavors, while the avocado and zesty Pepper Jack completes the already complex taste. I used a pineapple-habanero salsa for added heat and a little sweetness but any salsa will work. The jalapeño pepper can be adjusted to taste or reduced to make the recipe more kid friendly.
