Mealthy Tip

If you want to make this completely from scratch, use the Mealthy pressure cooker salsa chicken recipe. Drain the liquid off really well, and use 1¾ cups salsa chicken instead of rotisserie chicken and salsa.

Try carnitas or shredded beef for a different meat option.

Looking for vegetarian taquitos? Use black beans or pinto beans instead of the chicken. Want a gluten-free taquito? Use corn tortillas instead of the flour tortillas.

Taquitos are a family favorite around here -- hadn't considered an air fryer for them so this is a very welcome addition to our taquitos lifestyle. Topping with pickled red onions is just the icing on the cake! Yum!

What a delicious meal. The crisp on the taquitos from the air fryer is a perfect idea.

Only put them in for 7 minutes at 400 and they got so burned!
