I have changed the original recipe to suit my tastes. It is easy to make and so good. It you choose to set in the fridge overnight, I suggest taking it out of the fridge about 2 hours before serving so it will be a little softer to cut and eat with chips. ENJOY!!
1Stir crushed tortilla chips into melted butter. Press into bottom of a 9-inch spring form pan. Bake for 15 minutes at 325 degrees.
2Beat cream cheese, eggs and taco seasoning with mixer. Stir in cheddar cheese and green chilies. Spread filling on top of crust and set aside.
3Brown 1lb hamburger, drain. Add refried beans and mix together with hamburger. I also add 1 t each of cumin, chili powder and garlic powder to the meat mixture. Spread hamburger/bean mixture on top of cream cheese mixture. Place pan back in the oven for 30 minutes.
4Spread sour cream over baked cheesecake and refrigerate 3 hrs or overnight. After releasing it from the spring form pan, top with a layer of salsa, lettuce, black olives, tomatoes and green onions. Serve with yellow corn tortilla chips.
