What Is a Mollete?

This is a recipe that I had never tried before but had heard about from others. It is simple and requires few ingredients, but nonetheless, it is delicious!

After hearing about the mollete, I decided to research its origins. It comes from Spain—Andalusia, to be exact. The Spanish mollete is an appetizer that consists of soft bread that has been drizzled with olive oil and topped with garlic spread.

There is also a Mexican version of this dish that is more of a meal. It consists of bolillos (French bread), refried beans and cheese.

While researching the mollete, I came upon a number of different versions, most of which were Mexican-style. Some prefer to add chorizo to the refried beans and others top their molletes with bacon or eggs. This simple version is my personal favorite. Whichever way you prefer to make them, these molletes make for a quick, delicious, and easy meal. They are also great for families living on a budget.

Ingredients

  • 3 soft bolillos or 1 loaf of French bread
  • 2 cups refried beans
  • 6 Tbsp butter, softened
  • 3 cups shredded Oxaca or asadero cheese
  • Queso fresco for garnish (optional)

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Slice bolillos in half. If using French bread, slice the loaf in half (lengthwise), then slice the halves into thirds.
  3. Take the slices of bread and spread with butter. Place slices of bread on a baking sheet and place in the oven for 5-10 minutes, or until slightly toasted.
  4. Remove bread from the oven. Spread the beans evenly on top of the bread slices, then top with cheese.
  5. Place the bread back in the oven and toast for 10-15 minutes, or until the cheese has melted completely. Top with sliced avocado, queso fresco and salsa or any of your other favorite toppings (optional) and serve.
