1. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Add the onion and garlic, and cook until translucent and softened,
but not browned, about 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes, adobo sauce,
chipotle powder, cumin, oregano, salt, and pepper. Cook until the
spices are aromatic, 2 to 3 minutes longer. Add the shredded chicken
and toss in the sauce. Cook until heated through.
2. Wrap the tortillas in a damp towel, and microwave for about
15 seconds. Keep them covered until using.
3. Place the first tortilla flat on your work surface. Place about 2 tablespoons of the chicken mixture across the lower half of the tortilla.
Sprinkle with some of the Oaxaca cheese, then tightly roll up the tortilla. Use a toothpick to secure the tortilla. Add to the basket and
repeat with the remaining tortillas.
4. Once the taquitos are assembled and in the basket, brush with a thin
coating of olive oil. Place the basket in the AirFryer. Select AirFry, and
set the time to 8 minutes and the temperature to 350°F. Press Start/
5. When the taquitos are done cooking, remove them from the basket.
Top with a drizzle of sour cream and a sprinkle of cilantro and cotija
