  1. 1 can apple pie filling 21 ounces
  2. 6 soft flour tortillas medium
  3. 4 tablespoon butter melted
  4. ½ cup sugar
  5. 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


  1. Lay tortillas flat, and then spoon about 2 tablespoons of filling across the center of the tortilla
  2. Roll tightly and then brush the rolled taquito with melted butter
  3. In a shallow, flat dish, stir together the sugar and cinnamon, then roll the buttered taquito in the mixture, coating the outside
  4. Place in the air fryer basket, seam side down, without stacking or overlapping.
  5. Air fry at 350 degrees F for 9-11 minutes, until the taquito is golden and crispy.
  6. Use tongs to flip them over, and air fry for an additional 3-4 minutes, or until they reach your desired crispness.


  1. Choose the Right Apples: Opt for firm, tart apples like Granny Smith or Honeycrisp. They hold their shape well during cooking and provide a nice balance of sweetness and tartness.
  2. Thinly Slice the Apples: Thin slices ensure that the apples cook through evenly and become tender without being mushy.
  3. Seasoning is Key: Don’t skimp on the cinnamon and sugar mixture. It’s what gives the apple filling its classic flavor. You can also add a pinch of nutmeg or a dash of vanilla extract for extra depth.
  4. Prevent Soggy Tortillas: To avoid soggy taquitos, make sure the apple filling isn’t too watery. If it seems too liquidy, you can drain off excess liquid before filling the tortillas.
  5. Proper Tortilla Rolling Technique: Roll the tortillas tightly around the apple filling to prevent them from unraveling during cooking. Secure them with toothpicks if necessary.
  6. Don’t Overfill: While it might be tempting to stuff the taquitos to the brim, overfilling can cause the filling to spill out during cooking. Aim for a moderate amount of filling in each taquito.
  7. Brush with Butter: Before air frying, lightly brush the taquitos with melted butter or oil. This helps them achieve a beautiful golden-brown color and crisp texture.
  8. Arrange Evenly in the Air Fryer Basket: Make sure the taquitos are spaced evenly in the air fryer basket, with some room between each one. This allows the hot air to circulate evenly around them for consistent cooking.
  9. Monitor Closely: Air fryer cooking times can vary based on the model and size of the taquitos. Keep a close eye on them towards the end of the cooking time to prevent them from overcooking or burning.
  10. Serve with Toppings: Once done, serve your apple pie taquitos warm with a scoop of vanilla ice cream, a drizzle of caramel sauce, or a dusting of powdered sugar for an extra decadent touch. Enjoy!
