Guys, I love my Instant Pot but a new appliance is reigning supreme in our household, our Air Fryer! We use our Air Fryer every single day. Our poor microwave has become completely neglected because food tastes so much better reheated in the air fryer. I am slowly building up my Air Fryer recipe arsenal on the blog and hope to expand it quickly!

How to make tacos in the air fryer?

Making tacos in the air fryer is a two step process. While your air fryer preheats, you will brown your ground beef on the stove. I highly recommend skipping the packet of dry taco seasoning and buying Frontera Taco Skillet Sauce. You can find this at any grocery store and it seriously ups your taco game.

Ground Beef Tacos

Once your ground beef is browned, you will fill your taco shells with a few tablespoons of beef and then top with cheese and place in the air fryer to fry. The shells will get warm and crispy and the cheese is all melty and so delicious! Top with your favorite toppings! I like to keep it simple with either some fresh cilantro or lettuce and then lots of Mexican hot sauce.

Crispy Air Fryer Tacos

If your kids love tacos as much as mine do, then you will find yourself making this recipe every single week! You can swap out the beef for ground chicken or turkey or even use leftover shredded chicken. I recommend using the stand and stuff tacos as you can fit lots more in there and they stand up easier in the air fryer.
