• About Mezita

    Akcelep was established for the purpose of production and export of foods ready to consume in the food industry of Turkey in 2000. Akcelep has one of the most modern production facilities of the sector and has a strategic investment location, where we can easily reach to all inputs we need, in Ulukent Organized Industrial Zone of a port city like Izmir. In our factory, equipped with high technology, the production of a wide range of products over 200 consisting of canned foods, roasted products, and various sauces are carried out in international standards and quality.

    Akcelep aimed to create its own brand in the exports of healthy and delicious agricultural products of Aegean and Mediterranean fields, our lands, for the journey that started in 2000. In 2012 the company bought the MEZITA recognized brand in the domestic market and Akcelep created trademark as MEZITA brand. After this brand was registered in the British Chambers of Commerce (UK), first exported to the UK with the Mezita brand. Export to Germany, Italy, United Arab Emirates, and Pakistan are continuing under the Mezita brand.

    We have an environmentally friendly policy as a company and we do not avoid any cooperation with respect to this policy. In order to ensure the sustainability of the safe food production for human health, we adopt quality as our life philosophy. The quality management system established and followed in Akcelep was created in accordance with the requirements of BRC ver.7, IFS ver.6, BSC II, SEDEX and is applied to all processes from purchasing of materials in production facilities and warehouses to the shipment. We are constantly renewing with the changing production Technologies.

    2 tablespoons Olive Oil
    1 lb Baby Potatoes

    ⅓ cup jarred Mezita sliced jalapeños
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon cumin
    16 taco-sized tortillas (I prefer flour but corn tortillas also work well)
    1½ cups shredded cheese

    1. Add chicken, ½ cup water, cream cheese, Mezita sliced green jalapeños, garlic powder, salt, and cumin to crockpot. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high 3-4 hours. (lesser times are for thawed chicken, greater times for frozen chicken)
    2. minutes before serving, preheat the oven to 425 and grease a baking sheet with cooking spray.
    3. Use two forks to shred chicken and stir it in with the other contents of the crockpot.
    4. Heat tortillas in the microwave for a few seconds to soften them up, this will make them easier to work with. Sprinkle cheese in the middle of each tortilla (just divide the cheese evenly between all of the tortillas).
    5. Top cheese with 2-3 tablespoons of shredded chicken mixture. Roll tortillas tightly into a log-shape taquito.
    6. Place taquitos on baking sheet and spray heavily with cooking spray. Bake 10-15 minutes until cheese is melty and tortillas begin to brown.
