  • Cut stems from peppers. Cut a slit down one side of each pepper. Open each pepper flat and use a paring knife to scrape seeds from the inside and the skins from the outside. Place a cheese log on each pepper and roll pepper around the cheese to completely enclose. Thread shrimp onto skewers, alternating with mango pieces, leaving 1/4 inch between pieces, reserving marinade. Place stuffed poblanos and the shrimp skewers on the grill rack. Cover and grill for 5 minutes, turning and brushing shrimp skewers with drained marinade once during grilling. Do not turn poblanos. Serve shrimp with poblanos and corn salad.

Tips

*Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.
