Preheat the oven to 400°.
Spray six large, 3" muffin cups with no-stick spray and set aside.
In a large bowl, stir together the cornmeal, flour, sugar and baking powder.
Make a well in the center of the mixture.
In a small bowl, stir together the egg whites, buttermilk and applesauce.
Add the buttermilk mixture to the cornmeal mixture and stir just until moistened.
Fold in the chili peppers and 1/2 cup of the cheese.
Spoon the batter into the prepared cups, filling each 3/4 full.
