These little things are addictive. When I first got my air fryer a few months ago, we cooked just about anything frozen that we could think of. These taquitos became one of our favorite things to cook in the air fryer….as far as frozen foods go that is. They turn out so nice and crisp. Hubby and I now prefer them cooked in the air fryer than in the oven. What are taquitos some of you might be asking? They are typically corn tortillas rolled and filled with beef, chicken or bean and cheese. They are then fried and served with salsa or just by themselves. I have never made homemade taquitos, but the frozen ones seem pretty good. I prefer the brand by Jose’ Ole. These take no time at all to cook, especially in the air fryer. These make a great meal when paired with rice or beans, or even just by themselves as a snack.
Here’s how to cook them in the air fryer:
Preheat the air fryer by running it at 400° for 5 minutes. I find that preheating the air fryer no matter what you are cooking, seems to help crisp up the food better. Place the frozen taquitos in the fryer basket in an even layer.
or at least as even as you can get them.
cook at 400° for 4 minutes, flip them over or shake the basket and cook for another 4 minutes or until they start to turn a little brown and get crispy.
Cooking time might vary depending on the brand and size of the air fryer.
Serve and Enjoy!
