How to Make Frozen Burritos in the Air Fryer
To get started, unwrap you’re burritos and place them in the air fryer, seam side down, evenly spaced to make sure that air can flow around the burrito, otherwise it won’t cook evenly.
Now insert the air fryer basket into the air fryer and cook at 350°F for about 7 minutes. You want to cook at a lower temperature to start so that the inside gets warm otherwise you’ll end up with a cooked outside and cold inside.
Now flip them over and cook for another 3 minutes on the other side to heat evenly. Once done, crank up the air fryer to 400°F and cook for another 5 minutes until browned on the outside.
This method helps make sure you get an evenly cooked burrito with a crispy outside that tastes great!
Now remove with a pair of tongs (these will be hot so be careful) and serve.
As you can see, they are nicely cooked on the inside and crispy brown on the outside. Enjoy!
