The Meximelt

How to make Meximelt

The Meximelt was a mouth watering menu item, previously available at Taco Bell restaurants. It was basically a combination of a Fresco Soft Taco and a quesadilla. The dish features the flour tortilla and seasoned ground beef; it includes fiesta salsa of a Fresco Soft Taco and the melted three cheese blend of a quesadilla.   


The Meximelt was one of the longest-running dishes at Taco Bell chain that found its origin around 33 years back. In May 31, 1988, the dish was termed as a "tortilla for consumption on or off premises". 


You can prepare the mouth-watering Meximelt dish right in your kitchen by using a few simple ingredients. The main ingredients of this dish are ground beef, seasonings, cheese, and Taco Bell pico de gallo. Let us know the exact quantity of ingredients that you need to prepare 8 servings of Meximelt. 


Servings: 8 tacos

  •  1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 packet taco seasoning (or 2 Tbs taco seasoning)
  • pepper jack cheese, shredded 8 oz
  • colby-jack cheese, shredded 8 oz
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • pico de gallo
  • 2 Tbs water

Method of Preparation

  1. In large pan, add oil. Add ground beef to the oil when it becomes slightly warm. After the beef is cooked, drain the excess oil and then return to the pan.
  2. Add water and taco seasoning to the cooked meat in the same pan. Stir frequently by mashing the meat to fine crumbles. Bring this mixture to a gentle boil and simmer for 5-10 minutes until the meat becomes saucy. Remove the saucy meat from heat.
  3. Wrap the tortillas in damp paper towel to microwave them for 15-20 seconds until they become soft.
  4. Fill each tortilla with the prepared meat, cheese and pico de gallo. Tuck in the ends and then roll the tortillas like a burrito.
  5. Again wrap each meximelt with a damp paper towel and microwave for another 15 seconds.
  6. This wil help the cheese to melt by giving the tortillas a slightly steamed quality.
  7. Now your favourite Meximelt is ready. Serve the dish hot and fresh.

Was able to order a non menu item

Depending on the Taco Bell franchise, a meximelt can no longer be ordered by name. You have to ask for something different on the menu and add things to it to make it a meximelt. I just asked the worker if he could make me a meximelt and he did with no problem. 2 thumbs up. Fast and friendly service!

Ok, so the meximelt is literally the BIGGEST rip off Taco Bell has ever accomplished. It's basically a small taco with tomatoes and some sauce.


For 1.50 I could understand this... maybe. BUT IT COST 2.59!!!!!!!!!! When I saw the cost I was expecting something fulfilling and delicious.


But no... a tiny taco! Are you kidding???? I can find delicious authentic mexican street tacos for less (around 2 dollars each).


I go to taco bell to save money. What's the point now?! You really think you compare to the real thing? YOU DON'T COME CLOSE TRUST ME.


Look, the Beefy 5 layer burrito is around 1.50 and its huge in comparison. I honestly don't understand how they get away with this. Don't even get me started about their quesadillas. If I'm paying 3-4 dollars for a quesadilla I expect more than 2 pieces of chicken per slice.


They are super stingy on ingredients and ripping off people left and right. WHATEVER YOU DO DONT BUY THE MEXIMELT!!!!!!!


Reason of review: Pricing issue.
