This is an award winning recipe I got from the local newspaper. The three-hour cook time includes about 2.5 hours chilling time before serving.

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.
