Beat egg whites until they form soft peaks. Fold in beaten egg yolks and flour. Drop the batter (the size of a 6-in.x4-in.oval) onto a greased fry pan. Place a stuffed chile on it and cover with batter. Cook over low heat until golden. Turn with spatula and brown on other side. Drain on paper towels.
