The mini tacos air fryer is a fast and easy way to make frozen mini tacos that are crispy on the outside and warm and cheesy on the inside. These are a great snack for kids or adults. They are also a quick appetizer for game day or to serve with dips.
The best part is that you don’t need to add any extra oil to air fry these frozen tacos. The shredded meat and corn filling are already cooked so they don’t need any extra heat. The corn shells are toasted and crispy which gives them a delicious texture. These are better than microwaved frozen tacos and even better than deep-fried ones.
Tiny Tacos, Big Flavor: Crispy Mini Taco Magic in the Air Fryer
I’m using Jose Ole mini tacos in this recipe but this method works with any brand of frozen tacos. Trader Joe’s, Don Miguel and Target brand are all good choices. I like to add a little extra salsa and melty cheese to the bottom of the tacos before adding the meat and vegetables. It helps to keep the tortillas from sticking to the plate.
Cooking frozen mini tacos in the air fryer takes about 6 minutes. If you’re making a larger batch, cook them in batches so you don’t overcrowd the basket.
