    Redneck Epicurean's Note:

    I love the Meximelts at Taco Bell. However, I don't eat there a lot because sometimes, it gives me a tummy ache. But when I do, there are only two things I order-EVER! Chili-cheese burritos and Meximelts. One of my gal-pals worked there and told me what was in one. I couldn't figure it out because I was too busy inhaling it. So...here's my take on the Meximelt.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Prepare the hamburger meat and drain off all the grease and/or water. Season.
    2. 2
      Microwave the tortilla until it is soft and easy to roll.
    3. 3
      Place a layer of ground beef in the bottom.
    4. 4
      Combine all the cheeses (I just throw it all in a zip-top bag and shake so if there is any left over, I can have it for later.)and sprinkle the desired amount over the beef.
    5. 5
      Add desired amount of salsa, but do not use too much.
    6. 6
      (This is sort of like a taco, only the cheese is melted and there is no lettuce or sour cream or any other toppings.).
    7. 7
      Fold in half and place on a plate.
    8. 8
      Microwave for 30 seconds or just until the cheese is melted.

      Yum. I used Taco Bell brand seasoning mix, low carb wheat tortillas, low fat pre-shrdded Mexican cheese and lowfat ground beef with chopped onion. Didn't have salsa, so I added some Siracha to the beef mix towards the end. Delicious. Be careful, super hot right out of the microwave.

      Arriba, arriba! These were so delicious...I'm sure I would be disappointed by the Taco Bell version if I ever tried it (so I'll stick with Amy's recipe). I used Taco Seasoning Mix and modified Chili's Salsa to accommodate my sparse pantry. I also decided at the last minute to pan fry (w/Pam), like quesadillas, instead of microwaving. Loved the crunchy exterior it gave to the wheat tortillas. It was over the moon good! .......................................RIP, Amy.

      A spicy, cheesy treat! I lightened it up for my diet by using a fat-free tortilla, ground turkey and black beans and two tablespoons of 2% cheddar and two tablespoons of part skim mozzarella. Delicious!
