How to Make Air Fryer Tacos
Air fried tacos use far less oil and provide an unmatched texture. Air fryer soft tacos remain pillowy while the exterior browns, resulting in a delicious crunch!
Start by warming small flour tortillas to make them pliable, then spoon in refried beans.
Fold the street taco and place on an air fryer basket that has been coated with cooking oil.
Repeat until you run out of room on the air fryer basket.
Cook mini tacos in air fryer at 350F for 10 minutes, flipping once halfway through.
Serve with a side of guacamole, salsa, or vegan skillet queso!
- Be careful not to overfill the tacos!
- Don’t overcrowd the air fryer basket and work in batches, if needed. This will help them cook evenly.
- Keep a close eye on the tacos as they cook, as cooking times may vary depending on what type of air fryer you use.
I hope you love this tiny tacos recipe as much as we do! It's the perfect afternoon snack, light lunch, or dinner appetizer.
