Air Fryer Chicken Taquitos

Rated as 4.83 out of 5 Stars

"These taquitos are air fried, which makes them healthier than deep fried ones. Using shredded rotisserie chicken provides a quick prep but you can always use home-cooked chicken. Serve with sides of sour cream, Mexican tomato sauce, and guacamole, or your choice of sides."

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Preheat an air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  4. 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.

We will definitely make these again! The filling was nice and spicy with the addition of hot crushed cherry peppers. Easy dinner paired with a salad.

Delicious! My whole family loved them!

These were a welcomed change and now new addition to our dinner menu. My air fryer was much faster than the time listed in the recipe - only took 4 minutes on 390. The extra filling was wonderfu...

My grandkids thought these were delicious! Just enough crunch to give a nice texture to the tortillas.

Very tasty and easy!

Due to the quarantine, I had to substitute a few ingredients, but it was still good! A little practice with my ninja foodi and I would serve it to friends!
