Super Simple Molletes – or Mexican Toasted Cheese Sandwiches

We blogged about the recipe here.

Super Simple Molletes - or Mexican Toasted Cheese Sandwiches

  • 1/4 loaf ciabatta (or use a Mexican bolillo or a kaiser roll), split horizontally; it’s nice to have your bread only about 3/4- 1″ thick
  • 1 T butter
  • around 3-4 T canned refried beans (we use Bush’s Cocina Latina brand or Goya’s Black Bean Soup – which I mush up)
  • pinch of kosher salt
  • around 1/2 c grated Oaxacan cheese – or provolone, chihuahua, or Monterrey Jack
  • Lazy Day Salsa or store bought salsa – such as Pico de Gallo
  • sour cream or Mexican crema

Butter the cut sides of the ciabetta and put the halves under the broiler until the bread slightly browns.  Spread a thin layer of refried beans over each toasted side of bread, sprinkle a bit of salt on top, then add a thin layer of grated cheese.  Place under the broiler again until the cheese melts and is starting to brown a little – a few minutes.

Serve with salsa and sour cream – and please don’t skip them, since they add the perfect finish and are what makes these simple sandwiches delicious and unusual.
