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.
