Can you make air fryer frozen taquitos?

It’s possible to cook either store-bought frozen taquitos or make your own. Therefore, just worry about picking up your preferred style at the supermarket, since using an air fryer is very convenient and quick.

For you to decide which brand to try, below is a list of the most frequently found ones at the grocery. From there, you can decide what works best for you.

  • El Monterey, chicken & cheese flour taquitos.
  • StartLite Cuisine, vegan taquitos, chick’n style.
  • Delimex, beef taquitos.
  • Delimex, white meat chicken corn taquitos.
  • Delimex, chicken & cheese large flour taquitos.
  • José Olé, beef & cheese taquitos.

The stuffing may be made from chicken, beef, pork, cheese, sausage, beans, vegetables, rice, and other ingredients. Furthermore, taquitos are made from corn or flour tortillas, so their taste differs. Still, either wrapper is delicious.

In general, frozen taquitos found at the grocery are fully cooked, so you’ll have to cook them for a few minutes.

How to reheat frozen taquitos in the air fryer?

Following there are some steps to warm up the frozen taquitos:

  1. Remove them from the package and place them in the air fryer basket/rack. It’s not necessary to defrost.
  2. Spread them out in a single layer, avoiding overcrowding the basket.
  3. Next, drizzle oil over them.
  4. Then, cook at 400ºF (204ºC) for 7-8 minutes, turning them over halfway through cooking.
  5. Serve and top with sauce, cream, cheese and onion slices. Enjoy!

How long to cook frozen taquitos in air fryer?

In fact, it only takes 7 minutes if you set your air fryer at 400ºF (204ºC), although it might differ between air fryer models by 1-2 minutes. That’s because the power of the equipment varies from model to model.

Another consideration is how crunchy you want your taquitos, they might be crispy once they are a golden brown color. Some people prefer softer, but in general, when they are frozen and right after cooking, they get a super crispy texture.
