Air Fryer Chicken Taquitos

Submitted by: admin on April 10, 2020

6 servings


1 teaspoon vegetable oil
2 tablespoons diced onion
1 clove garlic, minced
2 tablespoons chopped green chiles (such as Ortega®)
2 tablespoons Mexican-style hot tomato sauce (such as El Pato®)
1 cup shredded rotisserie chicken
2 tablespoons Neufchatel cheese
1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
salt and ground black pepper to taste
6 corn tortillas
avocado oil cooking spray


Heat oil in a skillet. Add onion and cook until soft and translucent, 3 to 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add green chiles and Mexican tomato sauce; stir to combine. Add chicken, Neufchatel cheese, and Mexican cheese blend. Cook and stir until cheeses have melted and mixture is completely warmed, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

Heat tortillas in a skillet or directly on the grates of a gas stove until soft and pliable. Place 3 tablespoons of chicken mixture down the center of each tortilla. Fold over and roll into taquitos.

Preheat an air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

Place taquitos in the air fryer basket, making sure they are not touching, and mist with avocado oil. Cook in batches if necessary. Cook until golden brown and crispy, 6 to 9 minutes. Turn taquitos over, mist with avocado oil, and air fry for an additional 3 to 5 minutes.
