1. Begin by sautéing onions and garlic in oil for about 3 to 4minutes. Then, add in the ground beef, mushrooms, bell peppers, and spices and continue to cook over medium heat on the stovetop. Sauté until beef is browned and fully cooked to an internal temperature of 160 degrees F (or for about 10minutes.)
2. Add kale and stir in until kale is wilted.
3. Using a slotted spoon, portion out the ground beef mixture onto your tortillas in the center and sprinkle with shredded cheese. Leave about 1-inch space on the sides to allow the tortilla to roll into the taquito form. Sprinkle extra cheese on top.
4. Repeat adding the meat mixture into the tortillas until all are filled. Then, roll the tortilla up tightly, ensuring the opposite side is tightly tucked under the center. Lightly spray air fryer basket with an olive oil mist, then place rolled taquitos in the air fryer basket and set temperature to 370 degrees for 7 minutes. *Note, if your air fryer requires a preheat, be sure to turn it on during the sauté period above.
5. Once taquitos are golden brown, remove and let cool 2 to 3minutes before serving. Repeat cooking with remaining taquitos depending on the size of your air fryer basket.
6. Garnish with desired toppings like plain Greek yogurt (a nutrient-rich swap for sour cream), guacamole, jalapeños, and/or salsa.
