Add the full can of Pinto Beans, chopped onion, taco sacue, chili powder, cumin and brown sugar to a medium sauce pan and bring it to a boil.
Let simmer for five minutes, stirring frequently to avoid burning
Remove from the stove and let cool
Use a wooden spoon to mash the mixture together into a paste
Prepare the Taquitos
Warm the flour tortillas in the microwave for 10-15 seconds
Spread a light coating of the bean mixture lightly on the warmed tortilla
Sprinkle the cheese on top
Roll the tortilla tightly
Place in the freezer for two hours in order for them to harden
Cook in the Air Fryer
Heat the Air Fryer to 350 degrees.
Add the rolled up taquitos, keeping plenty of space between them for good air flow
Set the timer for 10 minutes
Serve immediately. Add salsa, sour cream or cilantro.
You can essentially place anything in these taquitos to fit what you want. Added shredded meat, and more! If you have leftovers go ahead and freeze them. Place in a freezer bag and store for several months. Then heat in the microwave or air fryer again. Use corn or flour tortillas. Both work great. If you are worried about getting it crispy, brush with butter or a light olive oil spray. Dip in sour cream, guacamole, or salsa. Batch cook these, making sure to keep space between them on the trays. Otherwise, you will run into soft spots on your tortillas.
