      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!
