Baked Chile Relleno with Shrimp

Baked Chile Relleno with Shrimp

The fontina, an easy melting cheese, combined with yogurt makes the filling incredibly rich and creamy. Fontina is a rich cheese, the tartness of the yogurt creates the perfect balance, of course you can also substitute with mozzarella or mild cheddar cheese if you prefer. Chile relleno is usually fried and filled with pork, this is a lighter version that's been baked and stuffed with shrimp.
