"A friend of mine e-mailed me to tell me that he'd dropped his jalapeno into his cheesecake...and that it was awesome! Inspired by my friend's clumsiness, I created this cheesecake. Sweet with a hint of heat at the end--all atop a graham cracker crust. Yum!" — Nashville Nosher

wow im not going to mess with this recipe!! this is soo good thnxx for this so easy&simple!!! xo :) the lime keeps the jalapeno from over powering...
I found it quite good when I served it to a group of friends. How ever it was a little tart .I would add another 1/2 cup of sugar and at least 6 jalapenos,
I added 2 and did notice the were even there.
My wife and I liked this, not loved it but liked it a lot. It was fun to make once to say I had a jalapeno cheesecake but it wasn't so terrific that I need to make it again. I will admit tho that I didn't want to make a full 9-in. cheesecake to I taylored this down to fit a 9-in. Keebler graham crust. To do this I used 2 (8 oz) pkg cream cheese, softened, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 tst vanilla, 2 eggs, 1/3 cup lime juice and 1 tsp lime zest. I baked at 350 for about 50 minutes or until center was almost set. Thanks for such a creative idea!
I think somebody missed something here. I made this twice and seemed to me, something was missing. The third time I made this, I added a tablespoon of sugar to the crust mixture. That did it.
Very creamy, not overly sweet. Slight flavor of jalapeno, not spicy hot. My jalapenos were a little small so I used 2: 1 red &1 green (1/4"diced)
