I’m not a huge fan of beans… but I LOVE this recipe! It’s also #HungryHusbandApproved – M is constantly asking for Molletes for dinner!
I actually learned how to make these after my mother in law made them for us in Winston Salem. She is an amazing cook!
Marshall loved them, and I loved that they were actually pretty simple to make! Worst case? Burnt toast.
- Heat up and mix (to a smooth texture) 2 cans of your choice of beans. We usually use a Bush’s Baked Beans, or a Pinto Beans.
- While the beans cook, chop 2 tomatoes, one bundle of green onions, & one handful of cilantro.
- Shred cheese of your choice. (we use a bag of shredded cheddar, or pepper jack)
- Toast Bread.
To put together each one of the Molletes, follow these steps:
- bread, toasted
- butter the bread
- layer of beans
- layer of tomatoes
- sprinkle onions
- sprinkle cilantro
- sprinkle cheese
Cheap, simple, and usually gives us enough for leftovers!
This is definitely one of our go-to recipes, since it requires things we usually have laying around in the kitchen already!
