Copycat Taco Bell Meximelts

Copycat Taco Bell Meximelts | Amp up your taco with some fresh pico de gallo #copycat

In September, I posted a recipe using leftovers for a Meximelt copycat. I finally am posting the Meximelt recipe that gave me the means to make a delicious pasta dish.

I'm not sure why I don't eat tacos with pico de gallo more often. It's way better than just a couple tomatoes thrown on there or some mushy salsa from a jar. It's fresh and zesty! I'm not sure if Taco Bell sells these anymore, but I guarantee homemade is better :)

What you need:
  • 1 Tbsp. EVOO
  • 1 lb. ground turkey
  • 1 Taco Bell taco seasoning packet
  • 4 plum tomatoes, diced
  • 1/2 to 1 jalapeno, deseeded and diced
  • 1/2 white onion, diced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, diced
  • Juice from 1 lime
  • Salt and pepper
  • Tortillas
  • Mexican style cheese
  • Hot sauce
Directions:
  1. Cook turkey in EVOO until browned; drain if necessary. Mix in taco seasoning packet plus water, as called for on packet.
  2. In a bowl, mix together tomatoes, jalapeno, onion, cilantro, lime juice, and salt and pepper.
  3. Serve seasoned turkey in a tortilla, topped with prepared pico de gallo, cheese, and hot sauce, if desired.
