Updated Sep 20, 2016

Ingredients

  • 1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup Progresso™ black beans (from 15-oz can), drained, rinsed
  • 1/2 cup canned (drained) or frozen (thawed) whole kernel sweet corn
  • 1/2 cup Progresso™ plain panko crispy bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup finely shredded Mexican 4-cheese blend (1 oz)
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 8 medium (about 3 inch) jalapeño chiles, halved lengthwise, seeded
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro leaves

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. In small bowl, mix cream cheese, beans and corn. In another small bowl, mix bread crumbs, Mexican cheese blend and melted butter.
  • 2
    Divide cream cheese mixture evenly among jalapeño chile halves. Place on cookie sheet. Sprinkle chiles with bread crumb mixture; gently press into cream cheese mixture.
  • 3
    Bake 28 to 32 minutes or until tops are light golden brown and chiles are tender. Sprinkle with cilantro. Serve warm.

Expert Tips

  • tip 1
    To prevent poppers from rolling while on the pan, slice a tiny (1/8-inch-thick) piece of skin from the bottom of each jalapeño half using a serrated knife.
  • tip 2
    You can prepare the jalapeños and the cream cheese mixture and refrigerate separately, covered, up to a day ahead. Let cream cheese mixture soften at room temperature before filling peppers.
