Servings 8 Taquitos


  • Air Fryer


  • 1 15 oz Can of Low Sodium Black Beans (do not drain!)
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Onion Powder
  • ½ teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 tablespoon Adobo Sauce from a can of Chipotles in adobo
  • Pinch Salt (Omit if you are not using low sodium beans)
  • 8 Corn Tortillas


  • In a small saucepan, combine black beans (including the liquid that is in the can), garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, and adobo sauce.
  • Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring often, for 10-12 minutes or until the liquid has reduced by about half. See photo for reference.
  • Smash some of the beans with the back of a spoon to make the mixture more cohesive. You can also use a potato masher for this!
  • Heat corn tortillas directly over medium heat if you have a gas stove. If you don't have a gas stove, use a skillet.
  • Working one at a time, heat a tortilla, then transfer it to a cookie sheet. Put a couple tablespoons of bean onto one edge of the tortilla and roll up. Place seam side down on a tray. Repeat until all of the bean mixture is gone.
  • Preheat air fryer to 425* F. Place as many taquitos as will fit in a single layer into the air fryer. Fry for 6-9 minutes. Times will vary with brand. Repeat until all taquitos are done.
  • Serve with hot sauce, salsa and guac for dipping.
