It came from Southern Living Magazine.. Saw it online.
Could it be better than it sounds?
Should be called chili-pepper cheesecake. I had visions of "chili" in it at first.
1/4 cup fine, dry breadcrumbs
1/4 cup (1 ounce) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
3 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
12 thin slices cooked ham, diced and divided
1 (10-ounce) block sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded
5 green onions, chopped
3 large eggs
2 small jalape�o peppers, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons milk
Stir together breadcrumbs and 1/4 cup shredded cheese; sprinkle on the bottom of a buttered 9-inch springform pan.
Beat cream cheese at medium speed with an electric mixer; add half of ham, shredded cheese, and next 6 ingredients, beating at low speed until well blended. Pour half of cheese mixture into prepared pan; top with remaining ham. Pour remaining cheese mixture over ham.
Bake at 325� for 1 hour or until center is set. Let stand 30 minutes. Gently run a knife around the edge of cheesecake, and release sides. Serve slightly warm or at room temperature with crackers.
Yield: Makes 18 to 20 appetizer servings
