> 3/4 cup vegetarian refried pinto beans
> 3/4 cup nacho taco shredded cheese blend
> 12 mini flour or street taco tortillas
> Cooking spray

For Serving (optional):

> Mild salsa

Preheat air fryer to 375°F. In a small bowl, combine the beans and cheese. Wrap the tortillas in a damp paper towel and microwave 10 sec., until soft and pliable. Spread 1½ tbsp bean mixture down center of each tortilla and roll into taquito shape.
Add taquitos seam-side down to preheated air fryer, making sure they are not touching, working in batches if necessary. Spray taquitos with the cooking spray. Cook 6–7 min., until golden and crispy. Flip taquitos and spray again with cooking spray. Cook 4–5 min., until crispy. Serve with salsa, sour cream, and guacamole, if desired.


To serve later, refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 5 days or freeze up to 2 months.
