Hola my friends!
Finally, I found energy to write a post… while fighting with tonsillitis and rheumatic fever, I was not able to get up from bed as every single muscle was in pain, but the worst days are over! 🙂 Lately, I was not cooking that much and mainly my husband have been in charge, basically of everything. It has been a while I felt so bad and honestly, I was so happy to have our aupair around. I did not spend too much time with my little one as I did not want him to get sick (and I missed him a lot and together with that felt so guilty, that I have been useless couple of days).
But I feel better and my taste buds have woken up again! I had started my day with Mexican molletes – simple and delicious breakfast, prepared by my beloved man. And what it is? A mollete, native to northern Mexico, is made with bolillos sliced lengthwise (in our case whole bread), filled with refried beans and topped with cheese, possibly added slices of jalapeño or avocado.
What do you need:
1 bread (not sliced)
refried beans (home-made or canned)
3 slices of ham
small pieces of chorizo
cheese (grated, according to your taste – we had mozzarella this time, however cheddar is great as well)
salt and pepper
Firstly, cut the bread lengthwise and prepare toppings for two different types of mollete. First one is with scrambled eggs, ham and onion. The second half is covered with potatoes, tomatoes, onion and chorizo (recipe can be found here, just without fried egg
🙂 ). When are two toppings ready, spread refried beans on top of bread (this time we used canned spicy refried beans) and toppings on top. Preheat the oven to 175 degrees, add grated cheese according to your taste on top of each half, put on baking tray and “grill” until the cheese melts.
When ready, you can serve with avocado on top and tomato aside 🙂 Or as my husband – with chillies or jalapeños. It is delicious start of the day!
