In Mexico, you would go to a bakery to get these flavorful rolls. Now you can make your own! See below for a tasty way to use Bolillo Rolls in a spicy Mexican Chicken Torta recipe.

3-1/2 to 4-1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 envelope Fleischmann's® RapidRise Yeast
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1-1/2 cups water
1 tablespoon honey
1 tablespoon butter 

1/2 cup cold water
1 teaspoon Argo® Corn Starch


Combine 2 cups flour, undissolved yeast and salt in a large mixer bowl. Heat water, honey and butter until very warm (120° to 130°F). Add to dry ingredients. Beat 2 minutes at medium speed of electric mixer, scraping bowl occasionally. Increase to high speed and beat 2 minutes. Stir in enough remaining flour to make a soft dough. Knead on lightly floured surface until smooth and elastic, about 8 to 10 minutes. Cover; let rest 10 minutes.

Divide dough into 10 equal portions on floured surface. Roll each portion into an oval, 5-1/2 inches long x 2 inches wide. Taper ends of each roll to resemble a football. Place on greased baking sheet. Cover; let rise in a warm, draft-free place until doubled, about 30 to 40 minutes.

Glaze:  Combine water and corn starch in a small saucepan. Bring to boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly until thickened and translucent. Brush each roll with glaze. Slash each roll lengthwise with a sharp knife, stopping 1/2-inch from each end.

Bake in preheated 375°F oven for 20 to 25 minutes, until rolls are brown and sound hollow when tapped. Remove from baking sheet and cool on wire rack.
