Molletes Recipe


Serves 4

This is a classic Mexican breakfast. It’s easy to make and will keep you fueled for the day ahead.


  • 1 French baguette
  • 1 can refried black beans
  • 1 cup cheese, shredded
  • 1 pint Metropolitan Market Pico de Gallo (medium or hot)


  1. Divide bread into 4 equal sections crosswise. Slice each portion lengthwise. Set aside.
  2. Slather each cut side with beans and place on a sheet pan facing up. Sprinkle each piece of bread with cheese.
  3. Turn your oven broiler on, place pan on top shelf, and cook until cheese is bubbly. Keep a close eye on it — it will take only a couple minutes.
  4. Transfer 2 pieces of bread (molletes) to a plate and top with pico de gallo as desired.
  5. Cook’s Tips:
  6. We like to slice the bread and store it in in an airtight bag in the freezer. When ready to use, warm the bread in the oven for a couple of minutes and continue with step 2.
