  4. Place 4 flautas in the air fryer, seam side down, and set the timer for 8 minutes. At the halfway point, your air fryer should sound to let you know to flip your food. Flip and continue cooking.

Chef Tips:

If using already prepared shredded chicken or canned chicken, heat the chicken up first before mixing in the softened cream cheese. You want it to be warm and well incorporated.

For oven use: Preheat oven to 400, follow steps then bake for 12 minutes and rotate half way through.
