I ADORE Greek flavors. I never tire of all the herbs, yogurt sauces, pickled onions… an absolute favorite of mine. Recently I shared a recipe for Cuban breakfast sandwiches (find them here) using my Greek shredded pork. I hope you have a huge batch of pork hanging out in your fridge or freezer because next up: Air Fryer Greek Pork Taquitos.
I hate wasting food around here, so I’m always looking for ways to re-use my ingredients. I love making big batches of shredded pork because I can resurrect it in so many ways. For these greek pork taquitos I used my easy Instant Pot shredded Greek pork. You can find the recipe here. It’s one of the proteins in my original Macro Friendly Cookbook, Lillie Eats and tells. It’s super simple to make and use in all sorts of meals. Just don’t hate me too much if your Instant Pot smells like garlic after you make it. I promise, it’s worth it.
Greek Food + Mexican Food = Yum
These Greek pork taquitos combine my love of Mexican food with my favorite Greek flavors. There’s seriously nothing better. If you want to make these taquitos for the whole family, just double or triple the amounts of each ingredient of course! I wrote it as a quick meal for one.
To get started, you’ll need 3 corn tortillas. Find a brand you like, but check the labels if you care about the macros to find ones around 10 carbs each. Make sure to microwave them in between a couple wet paper towels for about a minute to make them nice and pliable so they won’t break while rolling. Whatever you do, do not try to roll up cold corn tortillas from the fridge!
Once your tortillas are warm, lay them on a baking sheet and spread each one with a little hummus (5 grams). Fill them with some steamed cauliflower rice if you have it (not crucial, just helps bulk them up a little!), and then add your shredded Greek pork and a pinch of feta. Try to divide each ingredient evenly between the 3 greek pork taquitos.
Greek Pork Taquitos in the Air Fryer
Once they are filled, carefully roll your taquitos up, spray them with olive oil, and sprinkle with kosher salt. Put them into your air fryer at 400° for 10 minutes. Once they’re done, remove them carefully and top with Greek salsa and tzatziki.
You can find my Greek salsa here. It’s another one of my favorite things to have on hand when I have shredded Greek pork around. For the tzatziki, you can use store-bought or make a homemade version (here). To make an extra quick and easy sort of tzatziki, whisk a little vinegar into some greek yogurt with any chopped herbs if you’ve got em. For more flavor, I always add a few of my pickled onions to the tops of these Greek pork taquitos, too. Find the recipe for those here.
Now, sit back and enjoy your taquitos! These are the perfect combo of crunchy and soft. The cauliflower rice is nice for some added bulk in the taquitos and the hummus keeps things moist. If you make this, be sure to comment here or tag me on Instagram! And for more of my daily eats and workouts, follow me on Instagram @lillieeatsandtells.
Greek Pork Taquitos in the Air Fryer
- 3 corn tortillas 10 carbs each
- 1 Tbsp hummus
- 1/4 cup steamed cauliflower rice optional, just a little bulk
- 1/2 cup shredded Greek pork 90 g (recipe here)
- 2 Tbsp reduced fat feta 14 g
- Light mist of olive oil spray 2 g
- 1/3 cup Greek salsa 75 g (recipe here)
- 2 Tbsp store-bought tzatziki*
- Pinch of pickled onions if you’ve got em!
- Fresh mint
- Microwave corn tortillas between two wet paper towels for 1 minute so they’re very pliable. Lay on a plate or baking dish and spread each tortilla with 5 grams of hummus. Fill with 15 grams steamed cauliflower rice, 30 grams shredded Greek pork, and a pinch of feta. (So you’re dividing each ingredient amongst the tortillas.)
- Carefully roll your taquitos up and spray with a light mist of olive oil spray and sprinkle with kosher salt. Place in the air fryer at 400 for 10 minutes.
- Remove carefully from the air fryer, top with Greek salsa, and drizzle with tzatziki. If your tzatziki is too thick, thin it out with a little water or milk for drizzling. If you don’t have tzatziki, you can make a homemade version here. OR, just quickly whisk a little vinegar into some greek yogurt for a quick version. Add some mint or dill if you’re up for it!
