Air Fryer Breakfast Taquitos

 If you want a winning breakfast that the whole family loves, check out my recipe for Air Fryer Breakfast Taquitos!

I love breakfast and I love Mexican food.  When I became gluten free a few years ago, I really mourned the loss of delicious breakfast foods, but was excited that I could still eat many Mexican foods. I recently started making these air fryer taquitos and wow, are they delicious! Perfectly crispy, not a lot of fat that comes with deep frying, and you can fill them with anything.  I use these extra thin corn tortillas and they always come out AWESOME.

We actually call these breakfast taquitos “flautas” at our house, because that is what they are called at some of our favorite restaurants. However, upon doing a quick google search, it says that traditional flautas are made with flour tortillas, which I don’t eat, of course. BUT, I have known taquitos to be made with flour tortillas, too. If you are ordering flautas at a Mexican food restaurant or picking up taquitos from your favorite store’s frozen section, make sure to ask and read to see if they’re corn or flour tortillas.  BUT, for this recipe, you’ll want to use the extra thin corn tortillas if you are not allergic to corn!  So GOOD!

Taquitos are good straight out of the air fryer (although they will be a little hot!) but dip them in some cool salsa and they are out of this world amazing!

Air Fryer Breakfast Taquitos

Air Fryer Breakfast Taquitos

Yield: 10 breakfast taquitos
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 8 minutes
Total Time: 23 minutes

These air fryer breakfast taquitos are easy and delicious!


  • 5-6 slices of bacon
  • 5-6 eggs
  • 10 extra thin corn tortillas
  • shredded cheddar cheese, optional
  • spray oil, optional
  • salsa, avocados, guacamole, etc, optional


  1. Cook bacon until done.
  2. Add eggs and scramble together until cooked.
  3. Microwave extra thin corn tortillas for 1 minute to soften, making them easier to roll.
  4. Spoon egg and bacon mixture on top of a tortilla, and equally divide amongst all tortillas.
  5. Sprinkle each with cheese, if desired.
  6. Roll each tortilla carefully and secure with a toothpick.
  7. Set rolled taquitos into air fryer and lightly spray with spray oil, if desired.
  8. Cook for 5 minutes at 390 degrees.
  9. Check for doneness after 5 minutes.
  10. If not crispy enough, cook for another 1-5 minutes, checking every minute.


Regular corn tortillas will work, but the extra thin ones are crispier and easier to roll in my opinion. Just don't forget to microwave them to make them not break when rolling.

My kid flipped for these! We made them together and ate the whole batch. He asked for them every morning. 😆 I love that they're naturally GF and I'll be making them very often in the future!

I love how crispy these taquitos come out! I add avocado to mine and the bacon + avocado flavor is perfection.

We make taquitos often for dinner, but I can't believe I've never thought to try them for breakfast! These were SO GOOD. I served them with pico de gallo and guacamole and they were amazing. My toddler especially loved them!
