- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Line a rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper.
- Remove some of the bread from the middle of bread halves to accommodate more toppings. Spread about 1 teaspoon butter on each half.
- Spread 2 to 3 tablespoons warmed refried beans on bread. Sprinkle about 1/4 cup Borden(R) Cheddar and Monterey Jack shredded cheese on the beans. Place bread halves on prepared baking sheet.
- Bake in preheated oven until the cheese is melted and bubbly and the bread is crispy, 15 to 20 minutes.
- Top molletes with Mexican salsa or pico de gallo.
- Cook's Notes:
- Traditionally molletes are served with Mexican Sauce (Salsa Mexicana) but any salsa would work with them.
- If you would like to make them fancier you could add toppings such as: bacon, chorizo, mushrooms or poblano peppers.
- This recipe is excellent to reuse leftover bolillos or dining rolls.
