Prep Time: 15 Min COOK TIME: 6 MIN
Combine ingredients. In a bowl combine chicken, taco seasoning, cream cheese, and shredded cheese. Mix well.
Prepare tortillas. Microwave the tortillas for 30-45 seconds then remove and unwrap. This will soften your tortillas so you are able to roll them up without cracking. Note: If they cool too much as you are filling your taquitos then you can rewrap and heat the tortillas as needed to soften.
Roll tortillas. Spoon about 1/4 cup of the mixture onto each corn tortilla before rolling it up and placing it, seam side down, on a piece of parchment paper.
Preheat air fryer. Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees F for 5 minutes.
Spray tortillas. While the air fryer preheats spray the rolled taquitos with olive oil or avocado spray, lightly coating all sides.
Cook for 6-8 minutes. Place the taquitos in the air fryer basket side-by-side, do not stack. Cook for 6-8 minutes or until the tortilla begins to lightly brown and is crisp. Continue to cook in batches until all of the taquitos are baked.
