Taquitos are crispy, rolled "little tacos" that are usually deep-fried.  Part of what makes this Air-Fryer Chicken Taquitos recipe so much better?  You guessed it, the taquitos are air-fried instead!  Less work, less mess and more flavor, thanks to the spicy enchilada sauce in the chicken and cheese filling.  You only need 5 ingredients!  Just mix some enchilada sauce with cooked chicken and Cheddar cheese, roll up in corn tortillas, place into the air fryer basket, then air-fry until crisp and golden brown.  Stir more enchilada sauce into sour cream for a creamy, spicy dipping sauce and you can have Air-Fryer Chicken Taquitos in less than 25 minutes.


  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 1 can (10.5 ounces) Pace® Mild Enchilada Sauce
  • 1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 12 corn tortilla (6-inch), warmed
  • 1/2 cup sour cream


  • Step 1

    Heat the air fryer to 375°F.  Stir the chicken, 3/4 cup sauce and the cheese in a bowl.  Spray the air fryer basket and both sides of the tortillas with cooking spray.

  • Step 2

    Divide the chicken mixture among the tortillas.  Roll the tortillas up tightly around the filling.  Place seam-side down into the air fryer basket.

  • Step 3

    Air-fry for 12 minutes or until crisp.  Stir the remaining enchilada sauce and the sour cream in a bowl.  Serve the taquitos with the sour cream mixture for dipping.
