Wow Mark Hendricks, I never tried this recipe before because of the cheesecake name, so that it sounded like a sweet, which we are not that crazy about, but we love Mexican food and this is plain AWESOME!!!!! Thank-you.

Thank you Mark for this wonderful recipe! I made it for my Oscar bash last Sunday, and it went over big time! I've had other appetizer cheesecake recipes before, but this is definately the "creme da la creme"....even some guests who don't care for cream cheese raved about it!

Awesome! Used Fritos instead of tortilla chips since they are a bit "fluffier" and greasier so I only used 1/8 c. margarine. Used spicy Co-Jack cheese, an entire small can of chopped green chilis (always on hand.) I used 2 eggs so it would rise a little higher, and both green Tabasco Sauce and Frank's (half and half.) Didn't have any red peppers, but we love pimiento-stuffed green olives at our house so I chopped a few for the cheese mixture and used some sliced ones for the top. Extra yummy! There goes my New Year's resolution! I'm going to make it again for the Superbowl! Thanks!

This was a huge hit at a family gathering! Everyone was just raving about it. Too bad I forgot to take a picture because it also makes a very colorful presentation!

Having been sooooo excited about this recipe when I found it, I was somewhat disappointed after making it. Although we all liked it well enough, to borrow a phrase from Emeril... I think this one needs kicking up a notch. I'm thinking next time I try it I will substitute a can of Ro-Tel tomatoes (drained) for the green chilies, and maybe use finely chopped cilantro somewhere on the top. When I do, I'll let y'all know how it turned out.
