Sausage Breakfast Taquitos (Air Fryer or Oven) with Sriracha Ketchup

What goes into the breakfast taquitos?

To make these easy and delicious taquitos, you will need:

  • Olive oil.
  • Breakfast Sausage. You can use chicken, turkey, pork or even vegan sausages here!
  • A couple scallions.
  • Eggs.
  • Frozen chopped spinach.
  • Salt and pepper.
  • Small white or yellow corn tortillas. You can use flour if you like, but I like the texture and flavor of the corn tortillas better, They also get crispier.
  • Sliced sharp cheddar cheese, or any other sliced cheese you prefer!

What kind of tortillas are best for the air fryer taquitos?

I prefer to use corn tortillas for this recipe. They have a better flavor, and they get crisper than a flour tortilla. If you do decide to use flour, keep an eye on them and adjust your time accordingly. Flour tortillas may brown more quickly.

Can I make the taquitos in the oven instead of the air fryer?

Yes! While I love making these taquitos in the air fryer, you can easily make them in the oven If you don’t have an air fryer, you can make these easily in the oven. To make them in the oven, you’ll start with a foil lined baking sheet sprayed with cooking spray. Next, layer the taquitos seam side down, and spray the tops with cooking spray. Bak them at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes, until golden and crispy!

Easy Sriracha Ketchup

These taquitos are great as-is, but they are even better with quick and easy sriracha ketchup. All you need to do is whisk the right amount of sriracha into some ketchup, and. it’s a game changer! Recipe included below!
