Let's Make It
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.
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.
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.
Bake 30 min. or until done (165°F).
Top with salsa, sour cream and remaining cilantro.
Prepare using ground chicken or turkey.
