Print Recipe


  • 3 Cups cooked shredded chicken
  • ½ Cup cream cheese softened
  • Cup hot sauce like Frank's Red Hot
  • 1 ½ cups shredded monterey jack cheese
  • 3 tablespoon crumbled blue cheese
  • 16 6-inch flour tortillas
  • olive oil spray

Optional Toppings

  • Blue cheese dressing
  • Crumbled blue cheese
  • Hot sauce
  • Sliced green onion


  • In a large bowl, mix the shredded chicken, cream cheese, hot sauce, monterey jack and crumbled blue cheese until well mixed.
  • Spoon 3-4 tablespoons of chicken mixture down the center of a tortilla and then roll up like a cigar.
  • Place the taquitos seam down in the air fryer basket in a single layer.
  • Brush or spray the tops of the taquitos with a bit of olive oil.
  • Set the air fryer to 350°F and cook the taquitos for 10-12 mintues until crisp.
  • Serve with additional toppings if desired.


If you don't like blue cheese you can leave that out of the recipe.
You can use either flour or corn tortillas, or a flour/corn blend.  However, if you are using corn tortillas you will need to warm them first or they will crack while rolling.
