This post has been on our site for well over a year now and from the comments below, the original cooking time was problematic for some so we updated the cooking time. A lot of factors affect cooking time including size of air fryer, size and amount of item, etc. So be sure to check your food to flip halfway through the cooking time – especially when you have small, thin items like taquitos that cook quickly.

      Yeah me too! That is why we like to flip half way through, but there are many factors that can cause it such as the air fryer you are using your elevation and how frozen the taquitos were. Thanks for letting everyone know you experienced a much quicker cook time!

    Me too…I just bought the fryer and this was my first attempt at using it. I did turn then at 7 min, but kept cooking
    Let’s just say my daughters taquitos could break a tooth. LOL Definitely 7 minutes next time.
