How Long to Cook Taquitos in Air Fryer


Taquitos are delicious, but they can also be hard to make at home. In this article, we’ll show you how to cook frozen taquitos in an air fryer so that you can enjoy them anytime!

Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees F.

Now that you have your air fryer and Taquitos on hand, it’s time to get cooking!

First, remove the cover from your air fryer and preheat it to 350 degrees F. You can do this by pressing the “Preheat” button on most models of air fryers. You can also set the temperature manually by adjusting a knob or dial on some models. Follow any other instructions that come with your specific unit if they differ from what we’re describing here.

Next, set your timer for 10 minutes–this will give you plenty of time for cooking without burning anything in case something goes wrong (or if you just forget about them).

Add enough vegetable oil to the air fryer to cover the entire bottom of the basket.

To ensure that your taquitos are cooked properly, it’s important to use enough oil in the air fryer. If you don’t have enough oil, then your taquitos will get stuck together and become soggy. If you use too much oil, however, then it will be wasteful and there will be some leftover after cooking all of them (which could also lead to soggyness).

The amount of vegetable oil needed depends on how big your air fryer is: if yours is small (like ours) then only about 2 tablespoons should do the trick; if yours is large enough for four people at once (like ours), then up to 6 tablespoons may be necessary.

Place frozen taquitos in single layer in the air fryer basket and cook for 10 minutes, or until fully cooked through.


The cooking time for taquitos in an air fryer will depend on the size of your taquito. If you’re using small-sized raw ones, they’ll be done in about 10 minutes. Larger ones may take up to 15 minutes or so.

If you want to cook more than one batch of taquitos at once, make sure that there is enough space between them so that they don’t stick together when cooked (this isn’t a problem if using frozen). Also ensure that each batch gets its own dedicated basket!

Allow taquitos to cool for 2 minutes before serving.

Allow the taquitos to cool for 2 minutes before serving. This time allows the tortillas to crisp up again, so that they have a nice texture and taste when you eat them. Also, do not reheat taquitos in your air fryer! The high heat will cause them to fall apart easily and become soggy once again.

Cook frozen taquitos in an air fryer for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F.

The typical time to cook taquitos in an air fryer is 10 minutes at 350 degrees F. This is a good place to start if you want to make sure your taquitos are cooked all the way through without burning them or making them too dry.

If you’re using frozen taquitos, add them straight from the freezer and set your timer for 15 minutes instead of 10, since they will take longer than fresh ones do to heat through completely. If you prefer crispy taquitos, try lowering the temperature on your machine by about 25 degrees (to 325), which will help ensure that they don’t get overdone before getting crispy enough!


Taquitos are an easy way to enjoy a Mexican meal without all the fuss. You can make them yourself at home or buy them frozen from the grocery store. If you’re looking for something different to eat tonight, try making some taquitos in your air fryer!
