EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Make this savory, serve-a-crowd cheesecake up to 2 days ahead; cover tightly and refrigerate.

Add a celebratory touch when you garnish this cheesy appetizer with fresh cilantro sprigs or other greens.

For the creamiest, smoothest cheesecake, use regular cream cheese. Fat-free cream cheese can give the cheesecake a dry, crumbly texture.
