Frozen Taquitos

Air fryer frozen taquitos are one of my go-to dinners or snacks with family. It is so simple to make and still has all the flavor inside each taquitos. Dress them up or eat them plain and enjoy all the goodness these taquitos have to offer. These José Olé frozen taquitos are the perfect way to create a meal or snack.

Using an air fryer creates a convenient crispiness on the outside but the soft beefy inside is full of flavor. Don’t have an air fryer?! Using a microwave or a traditional oven also works as well. Whether it’s family dinner, an evening with friends, snack time, or simple crave-able taquito creation select an occasion and show it off!

These frozen taquitos are packed with flavor and have the best taste and texture when using an air fryer. Enjoy these taquitos as a main dish using Mexican corn salad as a side or topping.

  • José Olé Beef Taquitos: Beef has savory shredded beef and zesty green chiles, all wrapped up in a freshly baked corn tortilla to deliver the perfect crunch every time.
  • José Olé Chicken Taquitos: Packed with tender, shredded chicken, green chiles, authentic seasonings and spices, all wrapped in a crispy, oven-baked corn tortilla for the perfect crunch every time.
  • Olive Oil Spray: This will help keep the frozen taquitos from sticking to the air fryer.

Optional Toppings

Toppings are endless! Add these toppings and more to your plate when making air fryer frozen taquitos. Create your favorite dinner in matter of minutes with these delicious topping ideas.

  • Shredded lettuce: Shred lettuce or purchase a bag of shredded lettuce to save time.
  • Olives: Slice olives in quarters or in slices for flavor.

The Best Tips for Taquitos

  • Flipping Taquitos: It is best to move the frozen taquitos in the air fryer after a few minutes of cooking.

Homemade anything is way better than store-bought, for many reasons. First, you know exactly what is in your sauce. No funny-sounding ingredients here.

  • Make it gluten-free: Look for gluten-free soy sauce and you have a luscious gluten-free sauce that will taste amazing.
  • Sugar Swap: You can trade out the brown sugar for honey or maple syrup if you desire. The honey and maple syrup will change the consistency and taste just a bit. So adapt the other ingredients as needed. You may need to add a bit more cornstarch slurry to thicken it as desired.
  • Brown Sugar: Light and dark brown sugar work great in this recipe. The dark brown sugar will give the sauce a deeper flavor.
  • Grating Ginger: Use a knife to peel back as much ginger as you need. Using the smallest holes of a cheese grater, grate as much ginger as you need. You can also use a zester to grate the ginger. To preserve the rest of the ginger for another use, only peel as much as you need. Cover the peeled end tightly with plastic wrap and store it in the fridge.
