How to Make Molletes — Yummy Mexican Toast

Thanks to Old El Paso for sponsoring this post. Click here to see more of the discussion.



I think it’s a fair assumption to say most people who eat a mollete only have good things to say. Most of the country likes refried beans, and if you add those beans to a piece of bread and sprinkle cheese on top…you can’t go wrong. Watch the video below to see how this fast meal is made in just minutes. Enjoy!

Ingredients for Mollete:

Makes 2 molletes
  • a bolillo bread or french bread (sliced in half)
  • 1 – teaspoon of butter
  • 4  – heaping tablespoons of Old El Paso refried beans
  • 1/2 – cup grated monterey jack cheese or chihuahua cheese
  • 2 – tablespoons salsa


  1. Warm a small can of Old El Paso beans in a pan over a medium flame for 5 minutes. Set to the side.
  2. Slice a bolillo in half.
  3. Place both halves in a toaster oven and toast till the edges are golden crisp.
  4. Smear each piece with a little bit of butter.
  5. Then spread two tablespoons of refried beans on top of butter of each piece of bread. Use more beans if desired.
  6. Top beans with 1/4 cup grated cheese each.
  7. Place both pieces back into toaster oven under the broiler until cheese melts for about 3 minutes.
  8. Remove from oven and top with a tablespoon of salsa each.
  9. Enjoy!
