Roast peppers until the skin is blackened and bubbly. You can do this with tongs over a gas stove flame, or in the oven under the broiler at very close range, or with a chef's blow torch. Allow peppers to cool in a ziploc bag. Remove peel. Cut a slit along one long side of each pepper. Remove seeds and core. Rinse and pat dry, inside and out, using paper towels.
In a large pot, saute the onions in butter until they are brown and very soft. Add the next 8 ingredients. Heat, stirring occasionally, until taco seasoning dissolves and mixture dries out a little. Allow to cool.
Add cheese to cooled mixture. Stir to blend. Stuff mixture into each pepper. Press to close and place tightly in a greased casserole. Cover with foil, and bake at 250 degrees until very hot, about 45 minutes.
Meanwhile, blend remaining ingredients in a small saucepan. Heat to melt the cream cheese, stirring constantly.
Place each pepper on a warm plate, and spoon cilantro cream over all.
