Shrimp-Stuffed Hatch Chiles with Cilantro Cream Sauce

Directions

  1. Thaw shrimp, if frozen. Peel and devein shrimp. Rinse shrimp; pat dry with paper towels. Chop shrimp.
  2. For filling, in a large skillet heat oil and butter over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook and stir for 2 minutes. Add shrimp, sweet pepper, corn, wine, and chili powder; cook and stir for 3 minutes or until shrimp are opaque. Transfer mixture to a large bowl; set aside to cool for 10 minutes. Stir in cheeses, egg, salt, and black pepper; set aside.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat a 3-quart rectangular baking dish with cooking spray; set aside.
  4. Cut a slit lengthwise down one side of each chile pepper; open chile peppers and lay flat. If desired, remove stems and seeds from chile peppers. Spoon 1/2 cup of the filling onto each chile pepper (filling will be wet). Fold up peppers around filling and place, filling sides up, in prepared dish. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until lightly browned and filling is heated through (160 degrees F). Let peppers stand for 10 minutes before serving.
  5. Serve chile peppers with Cilantro Cream Sauce and, if desired, garnish with cilantro sprigs.
