(2 votes) 5 2

This is a recipe a friend gave me when we lived in California. These are really good. Try them with my Chili Rellenos Sauce, really good, and a must try recipe. You will Love these. I made these for my family when I first moved back to WV and they all had to have the recipe. This recipe will become a family favorite!

Drain and rinse chilies, cleaning off any remaining seeds. Slice cheese into pieces that will fit into the chilies. Stuff chilies with cheese. Beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Combine egg yolk and flour into egg whites. Dip stuffed chilies (1 at a time) into egg mixture. Deep-fry in hot oil untl golden brown. Serve immediately with your favorite salsa or Chili Rellenos Sauce. Serve with rice, refried beans, a tossed salad and corn muffins to complete the meal.
