  • ½ tsp. (2.5ml) dried oregano

  • ¼ tsp. (1.25ml) kosher salt

Prep Time: 15 minutes Cook Time: 20 minutes Total Time: 35 minutes

  1. Heat a medium, nonstick skillet on medium heat. Add a Casa Mendosa™ Corn-Wheat Medium Tortilla, spritz both sides with cooking spray, and heat until softened on both sides. Transfer tortillas to a dish and cover with a lightly moistened paper towel to keep warm. Repeat with the remaining tortillas.

  2. In a bowl, combine jalapeno, salsa, Mexican seasoning, oregano, salt, cheese, and pork.

  3. Take 3 tablespoons (45 ml) of filling and pack down the middle of a tortilla.

  4. Take one side of the tortilla and roll over the filling, using your fingers to get a tight roll, then roll up the rest of the tortilla around the filling creating the ¾-inch (2cm) diameter taquito.

  5. Heat the air fryer to 400°F (204ᵒC). Put taquitos in the basket of the air fryer in a single layer (this will require cooking in 2-3 batches depending on the size of your air fryer basket). Cook 5-6 minutes or until tortillas are crispy and golden brown.

NOTES: Softening the tortillas and very lightly toasting is necessary so they do not fall apart when rolled. If a Mexican seasoning blend is not available, simply substitute 1/2 teaspoon (2.5ml) cumin, 1/4 teaspoon (1.25ml) chili powder, and 1/4 teaspoon (1.25ml) garlic powder. If using a Mexican seasoning blend that contains salt, decrease, or omit the kosher salt (tasting for seasoning is always recommended).
