How To Cook Frozen Chicken Burritos In The Air Fryer

To make these tasty frozen burritos, all you need to do to start is to set your air fryer for 390F.

Then, you will need to spray a cooking, non-stick spray in your fryer basket. This will guarantee that the burritos will not stick.

Lay the frozen burritos in the air fryer basket. You can put in as many as will fit, but try to give each one a bit of room so they don’t stick to one another.

Cook the burritos for 6 minutes, then open your fryer and turn each burrito on its other side.

Cooking Tips:

  • If you like really crunchy burritos, cook them for an additional 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Be careful when eating, especially if you are serving children as they are going to be very hot on the inside.
