This recipe is paleo friendly, low carb, gluten-free and dairy-free. Flautas in the air fryer are super simple to make and a healthy alternative to your favorite taco shop dish the whole family will love.


  • 6 almond flour tortillas
  • 1.5 cups shredded chicken (or shredded beef)
  • ½  tsp cumin
  • ½  tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp garlic power
  • ½ tsp onion powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Guacamole
  • Pico De Gallo
    • 1 tomato, diced
    • ½ Onion, diced
    • 2 tbs, chopped cilantro
    • juice of 1/2 a lime
  • 1 cup shredded lettuce
  • Optional: sour cream, cotija cheese


  1. Heat a skillet on medium-high heat and spritz with avocado oil cooking spray
  2. Add in the shredded meat and chili power, garlic powder, cumin, onion powder and salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly until meat is warm and seasoned then remove from heat.
  3. Spray the bottom of your air fryer with a little avocado oil spray
  4. Heat tortillas in the microwave for about 10 seconds until they are pliable for rolling.
  5. Add about 3 tbs of the meat mixture onto one end of the tortilla and begin to roll. Once fully rolled, place the flauta seam side down in the air fryer, using a toothpick to secure if necessary.
  6. Continue assembling your flautas until the bottom of your air fryer is covered. (Mine fit about 5-6 at a time)
  7. Spray the tops of the flautas with a little more oil spray and air fry for 6-8 minutes at 370 degrees
  8. While flautas are air frying, mix the diced tomato with the onion, cilantro and lime juice
  9. Add flautas to a plate and top with guac, then pico do gallo and shredded lettuce.
