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.
Perhaps this is it: Mexican Cheesecake Recipe with Lechera
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
