"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."
Serving Size: 1 (978 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 1
"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 Recipe #2642 and modified Recipe #59635 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 recipe#204572, 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 recipe#78711 for dessert. Wonderful fast, fun, and easy meal. Miss you Amy!!!!!"
"Very good! This was a really easy and quick week night meal that satisfied my constant craving for Mexican food (and Taco Bell!)I always have these ingredients too! Thanks for sharing Amy this is a keeper!"
"This is another keeper for me for sure!!! I used recipe #38756 for the seasoning and I made the tortillas from recipe #131044. 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!"
"We will miss you dear Amy. This recipe was typical of our beloved Redneck Epicurean.....great tasting and simple to make. Great recipe to scale down for one or two also. I used McCormicks taco seasoning and added white onion and whole grain tortillas. Thanks for posting sweet angel!"
"Very good and easy. I used recipe #166030 for the seasoning. We found there was enough meat for 8 large cheese-flavored wraps, and there was cheese and salsa left over. Next time I'll buy more wraps! So easy to assemble, my seven year old made her own after I showed her the first time."
"I LOVE Taco Bells Meximelts! I used recipe#2642 for the seasonings, this is so great for a quick snack!! Thanks!!"
