Mexican Molletes Recipe with Refried Beans

Mexican Molletes with Refried Beans

If you have never tried a molletes recipe before we want to show you how to make this amazing Mexican toastie in the comfort of your own home and with a little help from Gran Luchito Chipotle Refried Beans.

Molletes Mexicanos mainly consist of crusty bread topped with refried beans and grated cheese. They are then placed under the grill or in the oven until the cheese melts and is lovely and gooey, normally served with a simple fresh salsa such as pico de gallo.

We love molletes because they’re a full and nutritious meal for your family that also happens to be super easy to make. It’s like the Mexican version of beans on toast.

We hope you’ll fall in love with them too and by using our Gran Luchito Chipotle Refried Beans you can put this together in no time for a quick breakfast, lunch or snack.
