  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • ¾ cup shredded cheese
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons taco seasoning
  • 10 medium corn tortillas (make sure they're gluten-free, if you're GF)
  • Optional toppings: salsa, guacamole, shredded lettuce. avocado, sliced jalapenos, sour cream, etc.


  • In a medium bowl, stir together the shredded chicken and cheese and the taco seasoning.
  • Warm the tortillas. Wrap them in a damp paper towel and microwave for about 30 seconds or until you're able to roll them easily without ripping the tortilla.
  • Brush or spray both sides of a corn tortilla with olive oil.
  • Add about 4 teaspoons of chicken mixture to the center of the tortilla and roll it into a tight log.
  • Place the taquito with the seam side down into the air fryer basket.
  • Do the same with the remaining tortillas, but be careful not to overcrowd the air fryer basket.
  • Spray the tops of the taquitos again with olive oil.
  • Cook at 400 °F (205 °C) for 9-12 minutes, or until the taquitos are golden brown and nicely crisped.
  • Garnish, if desired, and serve immediately. These should be enjoyed right away as they soften if they sit.


  • Depending on the model of your air fryer, you may need to adjust the temperature according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
  • Don’t stack the taquitos in the air fryer basket as you will not get them evenly cooked.
