Disappointed This was not what I was expecting. It was very bland and as much as I like my carbs the beans did not go well with the whole wheat bread I used. Instead of salsa I used freshly sliced tomatoes; perhaps that was part of the problem. Were I to make this again I would add a little spice to the beans (cumin and chile powder) and use a spicy salsa instead of (or in addition to) the tomato. Pros: Quick healthy Cons: Boring Read More

Tasty snack food! I actually put this on Wasa Bread and microwave for a little bit. It is a nice change of pace for breakfast...or even as a healthy substitute for a junk food craving. Pros: Quick and easy Cons: None Read More

Wrong name The real name of this dish is mollete and this is just the basic recipe. Molletes are served as breakfast but also as supper since they can be topped with many different things besides melted cheese and salsa. They are great healthy and easy to make so enjoy! Read More
