These crispy tacos are insanely good and super easy air fryer recipe for chicken.

Air Fryer Chicken Taquitos

This healthier take on the convenience store staple is perfect for a late night snack or for keeping the kids happy until dinner. 

  1. To keep things lighter, substitute the sour cream for Greek yogurt and use Mission’s Carb Balance Soft Taco Flour Tortillas with only 4g of net carbs and zero grams of sugar. 
  2. Add chicken, cheese, pico de gallo, salsa, and guacamole, and roll up tightly. 
  3. Set your fryer at 375-degrees, and consider flipping every couple of minutes. 
  4. After 5-7 minutes, you’ll have crunchy taquitos without the deep-fried oil that comes along with them! 

Air Fried Philly Cheesesteak Taquitos

Have you ever tried a Philly Cheesesteak, but in the form of a taquito? This recipe will impress even your pickiest of eaters!

  1. This recipe has an added benefit - the slow cooker! Nothing is quite as simple or time-saving as dumping your ingredients in the slow cooker in the morning (in this case, beef, onion, bell pepper, and seasonings) and letting it cook all day.
  2. Warm up your Extra Thin Yellow Corn Tortillas, add your deliciously-cooked beef mixture, and sprinkle cheese on top!
  3. Roll them up, and put them in your 350-degree air fryer for about 6-8 minutes. (Remember to flip halfway through if you want to ensure even crispiness!)

Making delicious, flavorful Mexican recipes for air fryers at home has never been easier. The next time you have Mexican night, get out your air fryer and pull up the Mission recipe page for a truly authentic taste that's healthier than deep frying. And with Mission’s tortillas, you’ll have the best-tasting wraps to bring it all together!
