Let's Make It
Crumble chorizo into large skillet; cook on medium heat 5 min. or until done, stirring occasionally. Remove from skillet; drain.
Whisk cream cheese spread and water until blended. Cook shrimp, onions and garlic in same skillet on medium-high heat 2 min., stirring frequently. Add chorizo and rice; cook and stir 1 min. or until shrimp are done. Add cream cheese mixture; cook and stir 1 min.

For easier roasting and stuffing, purchase chiles that are uniform in shape and size.
How to Roast, Peel and Seed Poblano Chiles
Place chiles on rack of broiler pan. Broil until skins are charred or covered with black blisters, turning occasionally. Place hot chiles in resealable plastic bag; seal bag. Let stand 10 min. Remove chiles from bag. Remove peels, being careful not to break the flesh. Make vertical cut in each chile; remove small cluster of seeds attached to the base.
