Cook the chicken filling in your slow cooker, then fill up some tortillas for a crispy finish in the air fryer!

– boneless, skinless chicken thighs, or chicken breasts – salt – garlic powder – cumin – salsa verde – green chiles – cream cheese – flour tortillas, or corn tortillas


Place the chicken in the bottom of your crockpot. Sprinkle the salt, garlic powder, and cumin over the top of the chicken. Pour in the salsa verde and diced green chiles.

Place the block of cream cheese on top, then place the lid on the crockpot. Cook over low heat for 6-8 hours or high heat for 4-5 hours.

Remove the chicken from the pot and shred with two forks. Return to the pot and stir everything well, evenly incorporating the cream cheese.

Soften tortillas by placing 3-4 at a time inside of a damp paper towel. Heat in the microwave for 30 seconds. Lay out the tortillas on a clean work surface.

Place 2 tablespoons of shredded cheese down the center of each tortilla then add 1/4 cup of the chicken filling to the side of the cheese.

Roll the tortillas up tightly and place in your air fryer seam side down, not touching. Heat your air fryer to 400 degrees.

Spray the top of the filled and rolled tortillas with cooking sprayand cook for 6 minutes. Flip the taquitos and cook for an additional 3 minutes.
