  • In a small bowl, beat egg yolks slightly.
  • Gently fold into egg whites.

  • In a heavy saucepan or deep fryer, slowly heat 1 1/2 to 2 inches vegetable oil to 400 degrees.
  • Roll the chiles in flour.
  • With a large slotted spoon dip the floured chiles into the egg mixture, coating liberally.
  • Gently place in hot oil, 2 at a time, and cook until golden brown on both sides, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • In medium saucepan, combine all remaining ingredients except the shredded cheese and sour cream.
  • Simmer, stirring occasionally, about 10 minutes.
  • Place chiles in a 13x9 glass casserole or baking pan.
  • Spoon the sauce on top of the chiles.
