  1. Preheat oven to 450*F. Remove stems, seeds, and veins from pepper. In a medium-size saucepan, bring a large amount of water to a boil. Add peppers and cook, uncovered, for 3 minutes.

Arrange pepper pieces in a lightly greased 11"x7"x2" baking dish.
  2. In a medium-size bowl, whisk together the eggs, egg whites, and milk. Whish in the flour, cilantro, baking powder, salt, and cayenne. Pour egg mixture over pepper pieces.
