Chicken-Chile Cheesecake

This tasty gem is supposed to be from the Feb.1992 Southern Living. I found it written on a scrap of paper in a recipe box that I bought at an estate sale so I can't be sure of it's accurate to the original. It can be used as an appetizer (serve with tortilla chips or crackers) or the main course. Use this recipe to get rid of leftover chicken (or turkey at Thanksgiving!). It makes 8-10 servings as a main course but at least double that as an appetizer. Great for parties!
