I'm going to warn you about these air-fried chicken stuffed tortillas and you will ignore my warning. That's how it always goes. These little bites are extremely addictive. There's your warning, but I understand if you think I'm exaggerating or blowing things out of proportion. Just don't say I didn't tell you so!

  • 4 ounces cream cheese room temperature
  • cups grated Cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • ½ cup roasted peppers diced
  • 1 cup corn kernels fresh or frozen
  • 1 minced Jalapeño pepper seeds removed
  • 3 scallions chopped
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 12 8-inch flour tortillas
  • ¼ cup canola or olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • salsa optional
  1. Combine the cream cheese and cheddar cheese in a bowl. Fold in the shredded chicken, roasted peppers, corn and scallions and season the mixture with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  2. In a second small bowl, mix the oil and chili powder together and set aside.
  3. Cut the tortillas in half. Make one stuffed tortilla at a time. Start by rolling one half tortilla into a cone. While holding the cone in one hand, fill it with 2 tablespoons of the chicken and cheese mixture. Push the filling down into the bottom of the cone, leaving ½ inch of the cone empty at the top. Gently squeeze the cone to slightly flatten the cone into a puffed triangle. Lay the stuffed tortilla triangle seam-side down on a sheet tray or cutting board. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. Brush each one with the chili oil.
  4. Pre-heat air fryer to 370°F.
  5. In batches, air-fry the tortillas for 6 to 7 minutes until the tortillas are lightly browned and the filling is heated through.
  6. Before serving, stack all the stuffed tortillas back into the air fryer and air-fry at 330°F for about 3 minutes to warm them all up.
  7. Serve warm, with salsa.
