Full disclosure: I didn't use bolillo loaves, I used a baguette. Next time I will be more authentic and go for the bolillo loaves, now that I know what they are and where to find them (local Mexican grocery!). Even one a baguette this is delicious. Tomatoes, cilantro, refried beans (I'll try black beans next time), and a generous heap of Cheddar really sold this for me.

My stepmother makes the best molletes, and these came really close to beating hers out (sorry, mom!). They're super simple to make, which I love. The pico de gallo recipe was also delicious, so glad I will not be buying store bought anymore. You can definitely taste the difference of the quality and freshness.
