Firecracker Pie

2 Packages cream cheese, (8 oz)
2 large eggs
1 can chopped green chilies, (4 oz)
2 fresh jalapenos, seeded and minced
2 cups Mexican taco cheese, shredded
1/2 cup sour cream
green onions, tomatoes, chopped
black olives, sliced

4 cups corn flakes cereal, finely crushed to 2 cups
6 tablespoons melted butter

To prepare crust: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a medium bowl, combine crushed cereal and butter and mix together. Press firmly over the bottom of a 9 inch springform pan. (I just used a regular cake pan, and served it straight from the pan.) Bake 10-15 minutes until
golden brown and firm.

To prepare filling: In a medium mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and eggs. Add green chilies, jalapenos and cheese and stir to combine with cream cheese mixture. pour over baked crust and bake 30-40 minutes, until center is firm. Cool slightly.

Place on a serving plate. Loosen the sides of the pan with a knife and remove. Spread top of pie with sour cream. Garnish with green onions, tomatoes and black olives. Serve with crusted baguette slices or tortilla chips.

Makes 8-10 servings.
