Copycat Taco Bell Meximelts

by Laura

Today, I am sharing a copycat recipe. This is for copycat Taco Bell meximelts.  A meximelt is a blend of seasoned ground beef, melty spicy cheese and pico de gallo wrapped up in a flour tortilla.

I must admit, I have never actually tried a meximelt from Taco Bell. So I can’t tell you how these compare. However, I can tell you that I love these. They are a nice change from having tacos for dinner.

First off, I usually perfer pico de gallo over salsa anytime if I have the choice. Beef seasoned with taco seasoning is a standard. Then add in melty pepper jack cheese along with cheddar cheese. The melted pepper jack cheese is what had me sold with these copycat Taco Bell meximelts.
