Preheat oven to 350°F. Butter a 9x13-inch baking dish; set aside.

Heat butter in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add poblano and bell peppers stirring occasionally until just golden and tender. Add onions and 1 package of corn. Continue cooking until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes. Set aside to let cool then drain some of the liquid.

Pulse the other bag of corn in a food processor with eggs, maple syrup, salt and pepper until well combined and almost smooth.

In a large bowl, combine cooled pepper mixture with corn mixture. Gradually fold in cornbread. Do not over mix; stuffing should have a coarse texture.

Transfer to prepared dish, cover with parchment paper, then cover tightly with foil. Bake 40 minutes. Uncover and bake until golden brown on top, about 15 minutes more.
