Super Easy Molletes Recipe
This super easy molletes recipe are one of my favorite meals. A mollete is just toasted bread topped with refried beans, cheese and the salsa of your choice. So super simple but really delicious. I like the fact that they are super quick to whip up but also have plenty of flavor. Molletes can be eaten for breakfast, lunch, dinner or even as a snack.
Bolillo is the traditional bread to use with this meal. However I prefer to use ciabatta bread and it works just fine. Sliced french bread also works. I like refried black beans on mine but you could also use refried pinto beans. There are a variety of cheeses you can use such as Chihuahua, monterrey jack, oaxaca and mozzarella. Mozzarella is my preferred cheese because I pretty much always have it on hand. Then I top it with pico de gallo.
Whenever I make refried black beans you can bet we will probably be having molletes later on in the week. This is why I love beans so much. They can be used in so many different delicious ways. They don’t have to be boring unless you make them boring. This meal is probably my favorite way to use black beans. I just love how the bread and beans fill me right up and then there’s the delicious fresh flavor of the pico de gallo. Just yum!
