    Mami J's Note:

    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.

    My Private Note



    Units: US | Metric

    For the salsa


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Make the salsa: combine all the ingredients in a small serving bowl and set aside.
    2. 2
      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.
