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!

I have loved meximelts forever! I made these tonight for dinner for the kids and me and they were fantastic! I didn't have mozzarella cheese, so left that out, but I didn't miss it. To make them extra good, we also added some fritos after they were micrwaved. Wow - nice and crunchy. I used wheat tortillas too. The result was perfect. I will definitely make again. Thanks for posting!

Excellent. Not quite Taco Bell but I suspect that was my fault. The tortillas (purchased) seemed too thick. But the filling was lovely. I'll make again!

This is so good! I am generally not a fan of fast food, but I do love Taco Bell. Meximelts are one of my favorite menu items there (along with cheesy fiesta potatoes and spicy chicken burritos).

Very good, and very close to the real thing! I actually used colby, monterey jack, and cheddar cheeses as that's what I had available. I think if I'd have used a different salsa (mine was tomato-y picante sauce) these would have been exactly like Taco Bell. I'll definitely be making these again. ** And Amy, I'm hoping that you're eating all the meximelts you want up there in heaven without a bit of "tummy trouble"! **

My FAVORITE item at Taco Bell. My favorite part of the Meximelt is the fresh salsa...or pico de gallo. I used Pico De Gallo, and left out all the peppers, since Taco bell's pico de gallo has only tomato, onion, and cilantro with the juices. This was PERFECT. My 6 year old was litterally squealing with delight. It tasted EXACTLY like the real thing. This will become a regular. Made Cinnamon Crispas for dessert. Wonderful fast, fun, and easy meal. Miss you Amy!!!!!

This is another keeper for me for sure!!! I used Homemade Taco Seasoning Mix for the seasoning and I made the tortillas from Homemade Flour Tortillas. The combination of all three of these recipes turned out better than I ever expected. I was thrilled to watch my picky 5 y/o gobble it up! Thank's to "a La Amy" for posting!- Your friend and Sister in Christ...Always, Remembering Amy!
