Cooking Tips

  • Different air fryer models can cook differently. Heat the jalapeños for another couple of minutes if they are not tender to your liking
  • These roasted jalapeños are delicious on their own, but you can also try serving them with dips like ranch, sour cream, or melted butter

What Are the Benefits To Roasting Jalapeños?

Roasting jalapeños mellows out their spiciness (especially if you remove the seeds) and gives a deep, smoky flavor. The easiest way to roast jalapeños is in an air fryer. Slice them, season them, and roast jalapeños at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.

What Temperature Do You Roast Jalapeños?

The best temperature for perfectly roasted jalapeños is 400 degrees. This is true for grills, ovens and air fryer’s. Be sure to add a brushing of oil or some nonstick spray to the cooking surface. This prevents the jalapeños from sticking to the surface while they roast.
