  1. Set oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Place Hatch chile peppers, cut sides down, onto the prepared baking sheet.
  2. Cook peppers under the preheated broiler until the skin has blackened and blistered, 5 to 8 minutes. Place blackened peppers into a bowl and tightly seal with plastic wrap. Allow peppers to steam as they cool, about 15 minutes. Discard skins and chop peppers.
  3. Coat a large skillet with cooking spray over medium heat. Place shrimp onto tortilla; cover with the chiles, garlic, and mozzarella cheese. Add salt.
  4. Fold tortilla in half and transfer to the skillet. Cook until lightly toasted with spots of brown, 3 to 5 minutes per side.
