- Add broth to skillet; bring to a boil. Gradually add cornmeal; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly to break up lumps. Transfer mixture to large bowl; set aside to cool slightly.
- Preheat oven to 375?F. Spray 11 x 7-inch glass baking dish with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
- Meanwhile, beat egg whites in small bowl with electric mixer on high speed until stiff peaks form. Stir chiles and cheese into cornmeal mixture. Stir in whole eggs. Gently fold one-quarter of beaten egg white into cornmeal mixture. Fold in remaining egg white. Spoon mixture into prepared dish.
- Bake 30 minutes or until center is set and edges are lightly browned. Remove from oven. Cool slightly. Cut into 6 pieces. Serve immediately with salsa, if desired.
