Lightly grease a 10 inch springform pan. Set aside.
In a skillet, melt butter and saute onions until tender. Set aside.
In mixing bowl, beat cream cheese until creamy. Add eggs, beating until combined. Add cheddar cheese and beat until well mixed. Add seasoning packets.
Next stir in onions, tomatoes, corn and black beans. Pour mixture into springform pan.
