Shrimp, Corn & Zucchini Stuffed Poblanos with Tomatillo Sauce

Need a delicious recipe to make on the fly with little notice? Need to feed a crowd? Rellenos are the Crespo Organic Kitchen’s answer for those questions. We love to fill beautiful poblanos with all kinds of fresh vegetables, herbs, sauces and cheese and bake them up, there really is nothing as easy as these. Here we choose precooked frozen shrimp, but you can substitute fresh shrimp just as easily. Using a store-bought tomatillo sauce can also save you some time.

A lot of recipes call for softening up the peppers before stuffing them, we never do that and find it not that difficult to cut a triangle shape out of the top, the flat part of the triangle should reach access the stem side and the opening big enough to stuff with ease. Most important is to use a paring knife to cut the seed base out of the inside of the pepper to prepare for stuffing.
