Keto Cheesy Chicken Taquitos

Keto Cheesy Chicken Taquitos

Keto Cheesy Chicken Taquitos – Made with leftover shredded or rotisserie chicken, these low carb chicken taquitos have lots of cheese, rolled in a low carb tortilla, and fried until it gets crispy.

Keto Chicken Taquitos – Notes

Chicken – Use any leftover chicken or pre-cooked store-bought/homemade rotisserie chicken, this is a great meal prep dish, make them in batches, and use them to make delicious meals, whenever you need chicken.

Tortilla – I am using Mission Carb Balance Tortillas. They taste like regular tortillas and with only 6 grams net carbs, are soft. Try Julian Bakery keto tortillas for gluten-free which contain only ONE gram of net carbs.

Oil – You can use lard, coconut oil, tallow and duck fat, my go-to option is avocado oil.
Air fryer – In the air fryer, make these keto cheese chicken taquitos, To 400°F, preheating the air fryer, for about 7-9 minutes, place the taquitos in the air fryer basket or until it gets crisp. To ensure they do not burn, check occasionally.

Filling – Sub spinach with tomatoes & green onions for the filling, they will still be yummy & perfect.

Cheese – Use any type of cheese(you prefer). Because of its mild flavor, I prefer mozzarella. pepper jack, provolone, or cheddar will also work just fine.

Store – For up to 1-2 days, you can store the leftovers in the refrigerator. Before serving, gently warm them. For up to 3-4 days, the chicken mixture will be good.
