Rated 5 out of 5 by from I made this a few days ago and I'll be making it again for a St.Patrick's Day party. I made this a few days ago and I'll be making it again for a St.Patrick's Day party. I did sub Kraft Neufchatel cheese for the cream cheese the first time & will again. I'm also adding more "green" to the top (green bell pepper) and making a shamrock design with all & adding another can of chopped gr. chili's.Instead of the chopped tomatoes on top, I'll be using a drained can of chopped tomatoes with chilies for that extra "pop"! Can't recommend this enough!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Everyone that tries it, loves it! Everyone that tries it, loves it! I have had several people ask for the recipe or request for me to make it for their party. I found it to be too mild so I made a few adjustments. For the crust I use guacamole flavored corn chips. In the filling I add taco seasoning and diced jalepenos. You could add the taco seasoning to the sour cream layer also. I serve it with tomato basil wheat thins which suprisingly compliments the dish quite well!

Everyone loved this recipe when I served it for holiday buffets so I decided to make it for my nephew's wedding reception in Colorado. It was the hit of the appetizer table. I made five cheesecakes for 200 guests. It was served with different salsas from mild to hot, it was all gone by the end of the evening.

I'd had this recipe for several years from an old holiday magazine and lost it and was delighted when I found it on the website. This is an excellent party recipe for people to dip their forks into and stand around the table eating and talking. I'm not allowed to take anything to office parties but this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from It sounded so good. It sounded so good. Perhaps it was my presentation but it was basically ignored after a few tastes. The top was messy and it was much milder than expected. How should it have been served? Sliced? With a fork? The ingredients are all favorites so where did I go wrong?

I was a little disapointed at the crust because I could not crush the tortillas fine enough, but I am sure that if I was able to it would have been perfect.
