Get ready for a quick and easy go-to snack with these Air Fryer Frozen Taquitos!
First, if you are looking for fresh taquitos, be sure to check out these Air Fryer Beef and Bean Taquitos.
This post will focus solely on frozen taquitos, making them in the air fryer or Ninja Foodi. This is basically warming them up and making them ready to serve with your favorite salsa.
This is a great little method to making taquitos if the kids are in charge of dinner, a good one they can probably make on their own at a certain age.
How long do you cook frozen taquitos in the air fryer?
These taquitos take about 6-8 minutes depending on the heat that your air fryer puts out.
I like to keep this cooking at 360*F, it seems to be the sweet spot for the air fryer.
Tips for Making Air Fryer Taquitos:
Air Fryer Frozen Taquitos are super simple and basically, it is just about heating them up in the air fryer to make them nice and crispy.
If they look a little dry or floury, you can use Grapeseed Oil Spray to give them a nice little mist of oil. We always keep this on hand when using our air fryer.
It’s also best to flip the taquitos about halfway through the cooking time to be sure they evenly cook on all sides.
What type of frozen taquitos should you use?
Any brand of your preference will work for these frozen taquitos; however, we typically use Delimex for ours.
These are fully cooked, so essentially you are just heating up the taquitos, but the air fryer gives them a nice texture too. They taste fresher than coming out of the microwave.
The internal temperature should be around 165*F to be fully heated.
