It’s so easy to make homemade air fryer chicken taquitos! They are so delicious and will be a family favorite in no time. My kids love them. You can make a dip for them such as pico de Gallo, guacamole, cheese dip, and more. The ultimate easy dinner idea!
This recipe is just as delicious as fried but without all the oil. You can cut them in half to make minis for a party. You can keep them warm in a 200-degree oven while you make multiple batches.
Before you start to fill and roll them, place your tortillas in a clean kitchen towel, sprinkle with water and microwave for 30 seconds. This will soften them and keep them from breaking.
If you want to make them with beef, just switch out the chicken for browned ground beef. Or just do beans if you want a meatless meal.
Air fryer chicken taquitos are just as delicious without all the oil. Enjoy the crunchy tortillas and cheesy filling. YUM!
If your tortillas are difficult to roll you can warm them slightly in the microwave before assembling them.
