In a small bowl, combine the remaining ¼ cup and 2 tablespoons panko and 1 tablespoon melted butter and mix well. Top each jalapeño with the buttered panko.

Place the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 20 minutes or until the tops of the jalapeños are golden. Serve warm with your choice of dip or dressing. Ranch is our favorite!
