  • 2 cups shredded rotisserie chicken
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, room temperature
  • cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 cup black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can (15.25 ounces) sweet corn, drained

  • Preheat air fryer to 400°F.*
  • In a large bowl combine shredded chicken, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, black beans, sweet corn, tomatoes, taco seasoning, and pico de gallo. Stir until well combined.
  • Scoop 1 cup of the mixture into the center of a tortilla shell. Fold in the sides, and, starting at the bottom, bring the shell over the top of the folded sides. Roll and tighten as you go, until secured.
  • Spray the outside of the shell with cooking spray.
  • Place into preheated air fryer for 5 minutes. (The number of burritos to air fry at one time depends on the size of your air fryer.)
  • Flip and spray the opposite side of the burrito with cooking spray. Cook 5 more minutes.
  • Remove from air fryer and serve warm with pico de gallo and sour cream.


*Oven Instructions:
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Follow the instructions to fill and wrap each burrito.
  3. Place the burritos onto the lined baking sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until heated through and the tortillas are slightly crispy.
Note: Cooking times may vary depending on your oven, so keep an eye on the burritos and adjust the cooking time as needed.

    Our whole family loved these! Made them in the oven and they turned out perfectly. Left out the cream cheese and canned diced tomatoes and added shredded lettuce with rotisserie chicken from the store. Added sour cream and taco sauce on top. So good!

  2. These would be much better without blending with cream cheese. It was like mush in a burrito. Gonna try again without.

  3. Do u really need the cream cheese? Everything these days is just way too much cheese and many in my family don’t care for cream cheese.
