Let's Make It
1
Mix cream cheese spread, shredded cheese and peppers until blended. Roll cream cheese mixture into 12 balls, using about 1 Tbsp. cream cheese mixture for each ball. Place in parchment-lined pan. Freeze 2 to 3 hours or until firm.
2
Heat oven to 350°F. Combine bread crumbs, taco seasoning mix and milk in medium bowl; let stand 5 min. or until bread crumbs are softened. Add egg and 1/4 cup cilantro; mix well. Add meat; mix just until blended.
3
Roll meat mixture into 12 (1-3/4-inch) balls. Flatten slightly, then top each with 1 frozen cheese ball. Wrap meat mixture around cheese balls to completely enclose each cheese ball. Reroll into round balls, if necessary. Place on baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray.
4
Bake 30 min. or until done (165°F).
5
Top with salsa, sour cream and remaining cilantro.
