Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mexican Mollettes The picture intrigued me first, so I had to make them. This had a great Mexican flavor and the refried beans as a spread added the creaminess this sandwich needed. I made a quick pico with tomatoes, onions, lime juice, and si si cilantro to top it off. Very Tasty. I've already made them a second time
