We used shishito peppers in this recipe makeover of classic game-day jalapeño poppers. They're typically mild, but 5 to 10 percent of them pack some heat, which makes eating them like a game of spicy roulette. Manchego is a sheep's-milk cheese made in Spain that has a buttery texture. Look for it in your supermarket's specialty-cheese section. Source: EatingWell Magazine, January/February 2019

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Position rack in upper third of oven; preheat broiler to high.

  • Combine Manchego, yogurt, scallions, panko, paprika and garlic powder in a medium bowl.

  • Make a slit down one side of each pepper and scrape out the seeds with a small spoon. Fill each with about 1 1/2 teaspoons of the cheese mixture and close the pepper around it. Place cut-side up on a baking sheet. Coat the peppers lightly with cooking spray.

  • Broil, turning the pan once from front to back halfway through, until the peppers are starting to char and the cheese is melted, about 4 minutes total. Sprinkle with salt. Serve warm.
