How to Make It

  1. Broil chile peppers on an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet 5 inches from heat 5 minutes on each side or until peppers look blistered.

  2. Place peppers in a large zip-top plastic bag; seal and let stand 10 minutes to loosen skins. Peel peppers. Carefully cut peppers open lengthwise on one side, keeping stems intact; discard seeds. Set peppers aside.

  3. Process egg whites in a food processor until foamy. Add mozzarella cheese and next 5 ingredients, processing until blended.

  4. Place cheese mixture in a large bowl. Stir in crabmeat and next 3 ingredients.

  5. Spoon crabmeat mixture evenly into peppers, pinching cut edges together to seal. Arrange stuffed peppers, seam side down, in a 13- x 9-inch baking dish coated with cooking spray.

  6. Bake, covered, at 375° for 25 to 30 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Top with Mango Salsa, and garnish, if desired.
