I don’t have an air fryer, can I still make these?
Absolutely! If you don’t have an air fryer, simply bake the rolled taquitos on a wire rack at 200C until the exterior is golden and crisp and the cheese has melted.
Can I make this vegan?
This recipe is easy to make vegan. Simply use beans as stated in the recipe and add your favourite plant-based cheese and other toppings in lieu of the sour cream and dairy-based cheeses.
