Nestle la lachera Mexican chocolate cheesecake kit was a very simple recipe 
and the cheesecake was to die for. I had called Nestle and gotten measurements 
so I didn't need kit. I live in the town the burned to the ground in 2018 so 
all my collection of old cookbooks and all my recipes burned too. I'd appreciate 
any help procuring the recipe again. 
In the box was a small can of condensed milk, cookie crumbs, and abuelita chocolate. 
I added cream cheese, butter and I think eggs. 

Hi Christy,

Perhaps this is it:  Mexican Cheesecake Recipe with Lechera


Hey Phaed:
The cheesecake recipe you listed had no chocolate.
If I remember correctly the chocolate version added two 90 grams tablets of 
Nestlé Abuelita Authentic Mexican Hot Chocolate Drink, finely grated.

I saw the request from "Christy" dated 4/11/23 for a recipe similar to the 
Nestle La Lechera Mexican Style Chocolate Cheesecake Kit.  I found an image 
of the back of the box that contains directions for the kit.  It might help 
in terms of the amount of Abuelita chocolate to add, etc.  I am attaching it.

I hope this helps!  Cynthia
