This appetizer will WOW your guests--it's sooooo good! Tortilla chips are the perfect complement to this cheesecake. Cut into small slices or dip your chips right into it -- either way, it's tasty! One note -- it's actually more flavorful when prepared a day in advance!
"This recipe has a lot of flavor and is very easy. I made it the night before and brought to a pot luck. Everyone loved it. I think it serves best if cut into pieces because it isn't as soft as most dips. But cut it and serve with tortilla chips and it's a go! "- echofc

In small bowl, stir together crushed tortilla chips and butter. Press onto bottom of 9-inch springform pan. Bake at 325 degrees for about 10 minutes. Cool slightly.
In large bowl, combine cream cheese and taco seasoning mix. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed, about 1-2 minutes. Add eggs. Continue to beat until smooth. Stir in cheese and salsa. Carefully spoon cream cheese mixture over crust spreading to smooth.
Bake at 325 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until edges are set (center of cheesecake will be slightly soft). Top with sour cream. Cool completely.
Cover; refrigerate until serving time (overnight is ideal). Just before serving, remove sides of springform pan; garnish with green onions, ripe olives and tomatoes.
Serve with tortilla chips. Enjoy!

StoneKarnak 1 year agoI have made this recipe on several occasions and it's always a hit. The only thing I do differently is to add a few Chipotle Peppers because I like it a little spicier.
lauradebruynegonzales 1 year agoA hit. Took to work for a carry in. was gone in no time and every one wanted the recipe. Easy too!
HBcook 1 year agoThis is good but I've made better recipes. I halved the recipe, used reduced fat cream cheese and sour cream, 2% mexican cheese, a whole package of taco seasoning. I accidently added 2 eggs but that didn't seem to affect the outcome. Flavor and texture didn't work that well for us. You really need to serve this on sturdy crackers.

Saimasisu 2 years agoThis was a hit with my guests. I cut it into slices just as you would a cheesecake. It's firm enough to stay together in a slice but also soft enough for chip dipping once it gets on your plate.
cathy.olson 5 years agodelicious. I froze it. It was perfect to bring out for unexpected guests. Great appetizer.
