How to cook a Frozen Burrito in Air Fryer
I enjoy a frozen burrito a couple of times a week for lunch. They are quick and easy and always taste great. Prior to getting an air fryer I used to cook them in the microwave and just deal with all of the fillings exploding out the side of the burrito.
They were messy but good and I went with it. Then I realized I could make air fryer frozen burritos and get an amazing crunchy shell and cooked fillings without the mess. HECK YEAH!
I will admit it did take a bit to get the perfect balance of crispy shell and the inside filling cooking just right. At first I was cooking them to hot and the shell was crispy but the inside was still frozen.
Making frozen burritos in the air fryer does take a bit more time than cooking them in the microwave but it is worth it! Once you try a frozen burrito in the air fryer I don't think you will go back to the microwave unless you have no choice.
Frozen Burrito - You can use any frozen burrito you love. The cooking times may vary depending on the size of the burrito.
Air Fryer - We suggest getting an air fryer that is bigger than you think you will need. We found once we started using the air fryer we ended up using it for more meals and larger meals.
Don't forget to flip your burrito a couple of times to get a perfectly golden brown crisp shell all the way around the burrito.
Make sure to place burritos in a single layer in the air fryer basket. You want the hot air to be able to circulate for the best air fryer cooking.
Cooking times will vary depending on the size of the burrito. Make sure to keep an eye on the frozen burrito in the air fryer the 1st time you make it so it doesn't overcook.
Check your air fryer user manual to see if your air fryer needs to be pre-heated. Our air fryer recipes do not include pre-heating. If you need to preheat you will want to lower the cooking time by a minute or two.
Times and temperatures will vary depending on the air fryer you are using and the frozen food you are cooking.
