Air Fryer Pulled Pork Taquitos

Air Fryer Pulled Pork Taquitos

Serves 8 / 35 mins

Ingredients

  • 16 Casa Mendosa™ Corn-Wheat Medium Tortillas
  • 2 tablespoon (30ml) pickled jalapeno, drained, diced
  • ¼ cup (60ml) salsa
  • 1 teaspoon (5ml) salt-free Mexican seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon (2.5ml) dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon (1.25ml) kosher salt
  • 1 cup (240ml) shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 2 cups (480ml) cooked pulled pork, shredded
  • Cooking spray
  • To serve: sour cream, guacamole, and salsa

 

Directions

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).
