Meximelt Recipe – a copycat recipe of the famous Taco Bell beef Meximelt that used to be available in stores. Super easy to make and even better at home.
You guys love a good copycat recipe as much as I do. The Taco Bell Mexican Pizza recipe on here is one of the most popular recipes of all time. So easy to make and so much better when you make it at home.
Taco Bell used to have Meximelts on the menu, and they were very popular. But like, the Mexican Pizza they removed it from the menu. Recently the Mexican Pizza has returned, but I don’t think they have any plans to bring the Meximelt back. But don’t worry, you can make it at home and it is super easy!
1 pound ground beef
2 tablespoons taco seasoning
6 taco sized flour tortillas
2 cup Mexican shredded cheese blend
3/4 cup Pico de Gallo
Pico de Gallo
1 cup tomato, chopped
2 Tablespoons onion, finely chopped
1 Tablespoons lime juice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 Tablespoon chopped cilantro
1/2 jalapeno, seeded and chopped
To prepare the pico de gallo toss all of the ingredients together in a bowl. Store in fridge until ready to use.
Brown the ground beef in a large skillet, breaking up into small pieces. Add the taco seasoning and water called for on the package.
Warm the flour tortillas in a towel, for about 20 seconds, or until they are pliable, easy to handle and don’t crack.
Fill the tortillas with cheese, meat, and some of the pico de gallo. Fold in the sides and roll up like a burrito.
Wrap each Meximelt in a damp paper towel and microwave for 20 seconds each.
What Is A Meximelt
The Meximelt was a specialty menu item that was a cross between a Fresco Soft Taco and a quesadilla. It was a flour tortilla that had melted cheese, their seasoned ground beef, and then the Fresco salsa on the inside. It was served warm, but not grilled.
Unfortunately in August of 2019 they removed it from their menu. At that time they seemed to pair down a lot of items, and anything that used certain ingredients (like the Fresco salsa) were discontinued.
