Well technically…Trader Jose’s if you inspect the package carefully! At any rate these ground chicken stuffed taquitos cook up with aplomb in the air fryer. You’ll start to hear them sizzle when they’re almost done. I found they reached a comfortable 200F internal heat after six or seven minutes easily. Far quicker than the oven and much tastier than the microwave.
