Ingredients

  • 2 cups rotisserie chicken cooked
  • 2 carrots diced extra fine
  • ½ packet ranch or southwestern ranch dressing packet
  • 1 cup Greek yogurt or dairy free plain yogurt
  • ¾ cup shredded cheese
  • 10 flour tortillas may swap low carb thin tortillas if desired

Instructions

  • Prepare ½ Greek yogurt dip according to package directions. You may prepare the entire amount and reserving 1 cup of dip for dipping sauce or veggie dip.
  • Clean carrots and dice using a food processor. Dice extra fine for a smoother texture. Add carrots and ½ cup cheese to Greek yogurt dip to combine.
  • Chop rotisserie chicken into small, bite-sized pieces. Combine with 1 cup of Greek yogurt dip and carrots.
  • Add ¼ cup chicken mixture tortilla. Top with 1 tablespoon shredded cheese. Roll tortilla tightly and spray end with a bit of cooking spray to hold seal.
  • Cook in air fryer at 370F for 8 minutes, checking halfway. Taquitos will be done when they are golden brown.
  • Use remaining Greek yogurt dip as dipping sauce or drizzled on top. Garnish with cilantro if desired.

Notes

Use buttermilk ranch instead of southwestern ranch seasoning for a more mild flavor.
Frozen taquitos in the air fryer should cook at 400 for 15 minutes, flipping halfway.
Tips for assembly:
  1. Be sure to mix the chicken with the Greek yogurt dip.  Don't layer them in the tortilla, the chicken will dry out.
  2. Don't overstuff the taquitos - they are harder to roll and don't heat through thoroughly.
  3. Spray the end of the tortilla with a bit of cooking spray to seal the taquito.
  4. Place taquitos in seam-side down.
