  4. In another bowl, beat 3 tablespoons flour and salt with egg yolks until thicken and lemon colored. Fold beaten yolk mixture into the egg whites.
  5. In a large skillet heat vegetable oil over medium heat.
  6. For each relleno, Spoon about 1/2 cup of egg batter onto the hot skillet. Spread egg mixture out slightly to make a circle. As egg begins to set, place a filled pepper on top of the mound. Cover with more of the egg mixture. Continue cooking until bottom is browned.
  7. Turn carefully and brown the other side.
  8. Drain on paper towels. Serve with fresh or purchased salsa.
