Bento Molletes

Molletes are one of my favorite Mexican antojitos. They are delicious, comforting and very easy to make. You just need a few ingredients, a few minutes and you will have a fast and nutritious lunch. I like them so much I came up with the idea of making a bento box for the kids with them.

This is how I made this Bento Box

Makes 1 serving


  • 1 English muffin
  • Lettuce
  • Mango with chile
  • Grapes
  • Queso Fresco

For the molletes, please check out the recipe here, but instead of using bolillos, use an English muffin. I added a bed of lettuce and mango with chile slices and my kids love them!  For a side dish, I cut a few squares of queso fresco and add them next to the grapes. I also included lime jello. That’s it. Very easy and very beautiful, don’t you think?
