    This appetizer proves that cheesecake is not just for dessert. Very good and the presentation of this is impressive. Enjoy! HELPFUL HINT: When cutting or seeding hot peppers, use rubber or plastic gloves to protect your hands and avoid touching your face. Prep time includes overnight refrigeration.

      This is a great party pleaser. I did mix it up a little with another recipe I had by crushing 1 cup nacho flavored tortilla chips and 1/4 C. melted butter, mixed together pressed in springform pan and baked at 350 for 10 min. VERY good either way. Someone at work made and all were asking for this recipe.....

      This recipe was a big hit at every party I took it to. I have given out the recipe to several people. I did make a few changes though. I made a crust out of crushed tortilla chips and melted butter instead of the cornmeal and I also used a can of Rotel instead of salsa and peppers. I put it in a 9 inch square casserole dish, too. Oh, I almost forgot, in order to make it fit the name Taco Cheesecake, I seasoned some browned ground beef with taco seasoning and added that as another layer. Yummy!

      I made this and took it to a Childs birthday party for all of the Moms that attended, It was great I pretty much kept to the ingredients but used chives and cilantro as garnish in addition to the olives and tomatoes.<br/>And It does go a long way!
