    cup onion chopped
    1 cup corn
    cup 2% Kraft shredded cheese

Spray large roasting pan with nonstick cooking spray. In a small bowl combine chili powder, cumin, salt, and paprika; mix well. Reserve 2 tsp seasoning mixture; set aside. To remaining seasoning mixture, add bread crumbs; mix well.

In medium skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add celery and onion; cook 5 to 7 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add corn, cheese, cilantro and bread crumb mixture; mix well.
