Directions:
Slice a slit on each chile and slide in a thick slice of cheese. Roll each chile in flour and shake off excess.

Separate the eggs. Beat whites until stiff peaks form. Beat yolks with 1 tbsp. water, 3 tbsp. flour and salt until thick and creamy. Fold into the whites.

Heat about 1 1/2" oil in a frying pan. Dip each chile into the fluffy batter, place on a saucer and slide into hot oil.

When bottoms are golden brown, gently turn using a spatula or fork and cook other side. Drain on paper towels.
