Bean and Cheese Sandwiches – Cinco De Mayo Recipe

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on May 4, 2011

In celebration of Cinco de Mayo, I’ll be having these for lunch tomorrow!


(Pronounced, moy-ette-s.)

Please pardon my incorrect breakdown of the sounds. Grammar, sounds and pronunciation are not my forte!

Molletes are traditional Mexican sandwiches, and my spicy version is the perfect way to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with a little kick!

I’m sharing the Spicy Molletes recipe over on!

I think they’d be pronounced more like “moh-yeht-tehs”. I never thought about having refrieds on a roll, but if my mother could have baked bean sandwiches to take to school, I’m sure I can do refrieds and cheese with a little enchilada sauce. Hold the jalapenos! Sounds pretty good.

Never thought of a recipe such as this one for a sandwich but it sure sounds good and appetizing, easy to prepare and great for a 5 de mayo party! Thank you for sharing.

Looks delicious and even better, looks easy!! Refried beans in a sandwich like this isn’t anything I’d ever thought of doing, but now, reading the recipe, I can’t imagine it being less than wonderful. This would also be a great picnic dish.
