Mexican molletes - super quick version
Molletes are a super-easy, tasty breakfast or snack - so comforting!
Servings: 1 -2
- 1 white roll (see notes below)
- ½ cup refried beans
- ¼ cup Oaxaca cheese grated/torn
- ¼ cup salsa
Cut the roll in half through the middle and scoop out a bit of the middle doughy part of each side so you have a slight hollow.
Preheat the broiler and gently toast the inside of the rolls until just crisp. Meanwhile, warm the refried beans.
Fill the hollow in each side of the rolls with refried beans and top with some grated cheese. Put under the broiler and cook for a minute or two until the cheese melts. Serve warm, topped with some salsa.
Traditionally the roll is a Mexican bollilo - a smallish French-style roll. You can also use most other medium-dense rolls eg kaiser rolls, dinner rolls.
Note most refried beans are not vegetarian as it will be cooked in lard, traditionally - if this is important to you do check label or make your own, as in other version.
You can use any salsa, to taste - mild, spicy or a simple pico de gallo is ideal too.
