Molletes Mexicanos

"An authentic breakfast item served around Mexico, these are the true molletes. There are other mollete recipes out there, but this is the traditional one. They are cheap, fast and very good. In restaurants they are served with hot coffee and fresh fruit. They can also be served as an appetizer for brunch. You can find bolillos in Mexican bakeries but can substitute 6 in. sections of French bread for the bollillos. Serve 2 for a main dish or 1 for an appetizer."

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Make the salsa: combine all the ingredients in a small serving bowl and set aside.
  • Cut the bolillos or French bread in half length wise. Take out some of the soft center to make space for the filling. Spread each half with 1/2 Tbs butter, top with the refried beans, place a slice of ham on top (if using), and cover with the cheese. Place the molletes in a jelly roll pan and bake until cheese is melted and bread is warmed through. Serve hot with the salsa.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

I began cooking as a kid with my mom. I cook mostly Mexican food, but my best recipes are the ones that I improvise at the last minute! Especially desserts, which I love to cook, but always forget to write down. I'm a stay at home mom of three kids- 2 boys (3 & 5years old) and a 1 year old baby girl. My husband and I have been married for nearly 8 years. I want to take a moment to thank all of you who have made my recipes and even took the time to review and/or photograph them. I appreciate every one of them! <img src="http://i23.photobucket.com/albums/b399/susied214/permanent%20collection/cookbookZWT.jpg" border="0" alt="I am alw"> <img src="http://i27.photobucket.com/albums/c175/emmyduckie/banner2009.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"width=90%> <img src="http://i132.photobucket.com/albums/q23/vseward/Bevy/officialmemberofthebevtaggame.jpg"> <a href="http://www.recipezaar.com/bb/viewtopic.zsp?t=278234"><img src="http://i25.photobucket.com/albums/c99/ruemke/banners/beans-1.jpg"> <img src="http://i250.photobucket.com/albums/gg271/MrsTeny/Permanent%20Collection/PACSpring09Iwasadopted.jpg"> <img src="http://i10.photobucket.com/albums/a132/tgifford/Game%20Room%20Banners/AM%20Banners/IRecommendGame_AssortedChoc-part-1.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="http://i21.photobucket.com/albums/b280/carolinamoon21/Ingredients/Other/Elves-appreciationSTICKER.jpg">
