Salsa cheesecake has been around a while. The first time I made one, I was hooked on these.
This recipe is for a small cheesecake that will fit in a 5" round pan. You will want to double it to make a 9 inch cake-sized springboard pan. This smaller version works, with a few simple steps.
1 8 oz cream cheese
2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
3 tablespoons bread crumbs
2 tablespoons chopped green chilis
½ teaspoon garlic salt
¼ teaspoon cumin
¼ teaspoon salt
Pre-heat oven to 325°.
In a bowl, mix together cream cheese, cheddar cheese, ¼ cup salsa, and green chili, egg and spices.
Prepare a small cake pan. line the bottom of the baking pan with a piece of parchment paper cut to size. Butter sides of baking pan.
Pour cheese mixture into pan and bake 20-25 minutes. Let cool a few minutes before attempting to remove from pan.
Use a spatula or butter knife to slowly remove from pan. Flip over onto a plate using pot holders.
Then flip again using a second plate so cheesecake is right side up. Top with remaining ¼ cup salsa and serve with tortilla chips. You can even add some sour cream on top if you like. This recipe can be doubled and is easier removed using a 9" springform baking pan.
Have you ever tasted Salsa Cheesecake?
