2. In a blender or food processor put the condensed milk, evaporated milk, eggs, salt, vanilla and cream cheese, which has been cut into small pieces. Blend until no lumps of cream cheese remain. Pour into cool mold.
3. Place mold in larger pan, and pour enough hot water into larger pan to come halfway up the sides of the mold. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour or until inserted toothpick comes out clean. Cool and then chill before cutting
