Using small spoon, carefully hollow out tomatoes, leaving 1/4- to 1/2-inch shells and being careful not to puncture sides. Drain tomatoes, upside down, on double thickness of paper towels.
2. In large nonstick skillet cook MORNINGSTAR FARMS Roasted Garlic and Quinoa Burgers according to package directions. Cut into 1/2-inch pieces. Set aside.
3. In same skillet cook poblano pepper, corn, onion and garlic in hot oil about 8 minutes or until pepper is tender and corn begins to brown, stirring frequently. Transfer to bowl. Stir in reserved chopped tomato, burger pieces, lime juice, cumin and salt. Add 3/4 cup of the cheese. Toss until combined.
4. Sprinkle inside of tomato shells with pepper. Spoon vegetable mixture into shells. Arrange in 8 x 8 x 2-inch baking dish. Bake, uncovered, at 350° F for 20 minutes. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup cheese on top of tomatoes. Bake, uncovered, at 350° F about 5 minutes more or until cheese melts. Serve warm.
