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