  • Place the bolillo roll halves cut side up on a baking sheet and spread each with 1/2 tablespoon of butter or margarine. Bake in preheated oven for 5 minutes.

  • Place refried beans in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 1 to 2 minutes until warm.

  • Divide the refried beans among the toasted rolls and spread evenly to the edges. Sprinkle each roll with 2 tablespoons of shredded mozzarella. Return rolls to oven and bake until cheese is melted, 7 or 8 minutes.

  • Remove from oven and top each roll with the sliced tomatoes, avocados, red onion and chopped cilantro. Sprinkle each roll with a pinch of cumin and a pinch of salt. Drizzle each roll with 1/4 teaspoon of olive oil.

  • Serve warm with fresh sliced lime.
