  • 1 Air Fryer


  • 2 cups cooked chicken shredded or chopped
  • ½ cup sour cream or greek yogurt
  • ½ cup salsa verde
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • 3 teaspoons taco seasoning 1 packet
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded

  • Preheat the air fryer to 370℉.
  • In a large bowl, combine chicken with sour cream, salsa verde, fresh lime juice, taco seasoning, chopped fresh cilantro, and shredded cheddar cheese. Stir to combine.
  • Scoop about ¼ heaping cup of chicken mixture onto each tortilla, then roll it up. Repeat until all of the filling is gone - about 10-12 taquitos.
  • Spray the air fryer basket with non-stick spray.
