Air Fryer Chicken Taquitos

Prep: 45 minutes
Air Fry: 21 minutes • Serves: 8

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 cup finely chopped white onion
2 tablespoons finely chopped jalapeño pepper
2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken meat
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 large avocado, peeled, pitted and chopped
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 cup sour cream
1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
16 (6-inch) corn tortillas
1 bag (6 ounces) shredded Monterey Jack cheese
Nonstick cooking spray

1. In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add garlic, onion and jalapeño pepper; cook 5 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Transfer to large bowl; fold in chicken, and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and black pepper. Makes about 2 cups.

2. In small bowl, mash avocado with fork; stir in cilantro, and remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and black pepper. In separate small bowl, stir sour cream and lime juice. Makes about 3/4 cup avocado mixture and 1/2 cup sour cream mixture.

3. In batches, on griddle or in large skillet, cook tortillas over medium-high heat 4 minutes or until lightly browned, turning once. Cover to keep warm.

4. Preheat 3.3-quart or larger air fryer to 400° for 5 minutes. Place 2 tablespoons each cheese and chicken mixture on bottom half of each tortilla; starting at bottom, tightly roll up tortillas around filling and spray with cooking spray. In batches, air fry taquitos, seam side down, in single layer 4 minutes or until tops are golden brown; turn and cook 3 minutes or until crisp.

5. Serve taquitos with avocado and sour cream mixtures.
