How to Make Mexican Chicken Taquitos in an Air Fryer

To make delicious Mexican chicken taquitos in an air fryer, start by preparing the filling. Combine shredded boiled chicken breasts, yellow corn, diced jalapenos, and green chilies in a bowl. Season the mixture with your favorite spices for an extra kick of flavor.

Next, take corn tortillas and fill each one with a generous amount of the chicken mixture. Roll them up tightly to form the taquitos. Preheat your air fryer to ensure a crispy texture.

Place the taquitos in the air fryer basket in a single layer, making sure they are not overcrowded. Cook them until they are golden brown and crispy, usually around 10-12 minutes, flipping halfway through for even cooking.

Once the taquitos are done, serve them hot with your favorite dipping sauce or salsa. These air fryer chicken taquitos are perfect for a quick and tasty meal or as a crowd-pleasing appetizer for gatherings. Enjoy the crunchy exterior and flavorful filling of these homemade taquitos made effortlessly in your air fryer.

Chicken Taquitos Serving Suggestions

For serving suggestions for your air fryer chicken taquitos, consider pairing them with a variety of delicious accompaniments. Guacamole and sour cream are classic choices that complement the flavors of the taquitos perfectly. The creamy texture of guacamole and sour cream provides a cool contrast to the crispy exterior of the taquitos.

For a fresh and zesty twist, serve your chicken taquitos with a side of pico de gallo or salsa fresca. The combination of fresh tomatoes, onions, cilantro, and lime juice adds a burst of flavor to each bite.

If you’re looking to add some heat to your meal, consider serving the taquitos with a side of pickled jalapenos or a spicy chipotle sauce. These spicy additions will kick up the heat level and add an extra layer of complexity to the dish.

To round out your meal, consider serving the chicken taquitos with a side of Mexican rice and refried beans. The combination of the crispy taquitos with the savory rice and creamy beans creates a satisfying and filling meal that is sure to please your taste buds.

How to Store Leftovers

When it comes to storing leftover air fryer chicken taquitos, proper handling is key to maintaining their freshness and flavor. To ensure your taquitos stay delicious for later enjoyment, follow these simple storage tips.

After preparing your chicken taquitos, allow them to cool completely before storing them. Once cooled, place the taquitos in an airtight container or resealable plastic bag. Make sure to remove any excess air from the container to help preserve the crispiness of the taquitos.

For optimal results, refrigerate the leftover taquitos promptly. They can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. When ready to enjoy again, simply reheat the taquitos in the air fryer for a few minutes until they are heated through and crispy.

If you have a larger batch of taquitos or want to save some for a later date, consider freezing them. Place the taquitos in a single layer on a baking sheet and freeze until solid. Once frozen, transfer them to a freezer-safe container or bag. Frozen taquitos can be reheated in the air fryer straight from the freezer for a convenient and quick meal option.

By following these storage tips, you can enjoy your delicious air fryer chicken taquitos even after the initial serving.
