"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!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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.
It's Jalapeno Day at work today. First time ever making cheesecake. It was a hit. Delicious and gone quickly. Creamy. Read many reviews and added the tablespoon of sugar to the graham crackers. This is an amazing balance of flavors. Would have loved to have added a photo, but it was gone before I could get someone to take a picture of it.
The taste was excellent! The directions were not. If reducing the oven temperature to 250 degrees, you need to bake it about 90 minutes. It also overflowed in my oven. Way too much batter for a 9 inch springform pan. Has anyone tried a 9 x 13 cake pan?
I wanted to take a picture, but my family ate it so fast I didn't have a chance. It was great! Few changes on my end: I made a chopped almond crust instead of graham cracker (2 cups raw almonds chopped to the consistency of breadcrumbs, 2 tbsp sugar, 4 tbsp melted butter), and I used a 1/4 cup of diced canned jalapeños. I also put on a simple whipped cream topping (1 cup heavy whipping cream, 4 tbsp sugar. Whip in a stand mixer 3-5 minutes until it forms soft peaks). Anyway, will definitely make this again!
was really good, different. i wish it would have had a little more kick. i will surely be making this again
