5 ounces Neufchatel cheese (light cream cheese)
2 ounces grated cheddar
½ teaspoon cumin
½ teaspoon chili powder
12 medium sized jalapeno peppers
1 egg
1 egg white
½ cup Panko bread crumbs


Preheat oven to 350 F. Mix cheese and spices in a medium bowl. Beat egg and egg white in a small bowl until a little frothy. Put bread crumbs in another small bowl.

Put on a pair of rubber gloves and slice jalapenos lengthwise. Core out the center and remove the seeds from each half. With gloves still on, put about 1 - 2 teaspoons of cheese filling into each half.

Dip filled jalapeno halves into egg mixture, then into bread crumbs. Put onto rimmed baking sheet and bake for 50 minutes until bread crumbs are golden brown. Enjoy!
