I love air fried jalapeno poppers with cheese on the inside and breading on the outside. They get so crisp and brown in the air fryer and gooey inside! So spicy and delicious. Yum!

These are perfect to serve as an appetizer at a party or gathering with friends or family.

How to Cook Frozen Air Fryer Jalapeno Poppers

These are so easy to make in the air fryer and will cook in no time!

All you need is 1 package of frozen jalapeno poppers, non stick cooking oil spray, and your air fryer.

I use the cream cheese filled jalapeno poppers from Appetitos, but you can use any brand or variety you prefer.

First you want to spray the air fryer basket lightly with the cooking oil spray. This prevents them from sticking to the bottom.

Next open your package of jalapeno poppers and pour into the basket. There is no need to defrost, just use as is!

You can add as many as fit in a single layer. Just try not to overlap them if cooking a large amount. You can always cook more in a separate batch.

Then set the temperature of the air fryer to 400F and the time to 8 minutes.

Then sit back and relax while the air fryer does all the work for you!

What to Serve with Air Fried Jalapeno Poppers

These also make a delicious lunch side – just make a salad such as my shrimp egg avocado salad, to go along with it!
