Hope everyone had a great Christmas. I'm getting my appetizers recipes out for
my New Years Party. Have not decided yet which ones to use. Except for Melissa's
chili cheese cake T&T that Snixie posted. Have to make that one.
1 cup tortilla chips, crushed
3 Tbs. butter melted
2 (8 oz. each) package cream cheese softened
1 (4 oz.) can diced green chiles
1 fresh jalapeño pepper, cored, seeded, diced
4 oz. Colby cheese, shredded
4 oz. Monterey Jack Cheese, shredded
1/4 cup sour cream
chopped green onions
diced black olives
preheat oven to 325°. In medium bowl, combine tortilla chips and butter. Press
into bottom of 9-inch spring form pan. Bake 15 minutes; remove from oven leaving
In large bowl, blend cream cheese and eggs. Add green chiles, jalapeño, Colby
and Monterey jack. Pour over crust and bake 30 minutes. Do not over cook.
Remove from oven and cool in pan 5 minutes. Run knife around inside edge and
remove sides from pan. Spread sour cream over top and decorate with tomatoes,
green onions, and olives. Serve with tortilla chips. (I serve this with a
variety of crackers)
Serves 10 to 12.
Note from Snix: At my house, this serves about 6
