Cheesy Shrimp-Stuffed Corno Di Toro Peppers

Here are some ideas for using what is at-hand to create an excellent stuffed pepper dish. I used some exotic ingredients, left-over from a party, in the original recipe; ingrediets such as Boursin cheese and corno di toro peppers, but I have translated them into their more usual counterparts for this recipe. For example, fully ripe red Corno di Toro (or Bull's Horn) peppers, which come from my garden, have a complex flavor both sweet and mildly spicy. Substitute poblanos for more heat and spice, or use hot banana or Anaheim peppers for even more heat. If you prefer mild peppers, substitute sweet Italian (aka Italianelles or Italian frying peppers), bells, or cubanelle peppers. I am indebted to TheTravelCook for her permission to use this recipe from the blog Brainfood.
