In large bowl, with mixer at low speed, beat cream cheese until smooth. Add eggs, one at a time, until blended, scraping bowl with rubber spatula. Beat in milk and next 5 ingredients. 5. Preheat oven to 375 F. Sprinkle shredded cheeses evenly over bottom of pie crust; pout egg mixture over cheeses. If you like, arrange fresh chives on top to make a pretty design.
