4 large eggs, separated
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup flour
8 finger-sized pieces of American, Jack, or cheddar cheese
1 tablespoon flour
1/2 inch oil in frying pan
Heat oil until hot.
Beat egg whites with salt until stiff. In separate bowl, beat egg yolks, then add salt and 1/2 cup of flour and mix well. Fold yolk mixture into egg whites just enough to mix. Use quickly, as batter will separate.
Make small slit in top of each chile and insert cheese. Roll chile in remaining tablespoon of flour to coat. Dip chile into batter. Fry in hot oil until golden brown, turning occasionally. If oil is hot, this will only take a few minutes. Drain on several layers of paper towels.
