“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.'s my take on the Meximelt.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Prepare the hamburger meat and drain off all the grease and/or water. Season.
  2. Microwave the tortilla until it is soft and easy to roll.
  3. Place a layer of ground beef in the bottom.
  4. Combine all the cheeses (I just throw it all in a zip-top bag and shake so if there is any left over, I can have it for later.)and sprinkle the desired amount over the beef.
  5. Add desired amount of salsa, but do not use too much.
  6. (This is sort of like a taco, only the cheese is melted and there is no lettuce or sour cream or any other toppings.).
  7. Fold in half and place on a plate.
  8. Microwave for 30 seconds or just until the cheese is melted.
