🤔Why Reheat Tacos With An Air Fryer?

  • The air fryer reheats food quickly and evenly using dry circulating heat so you don’t have to worry about hot spots.
  • Reheating in the air fryer helps to preserve the flavor of the tacos.
  • Using the air fryer to reheat tacos helps to keep them crispy on the outside while the filling stays warm and tender.
  • It takes just 5 minutes or less to reheat tacos so you can enjoy them in no time.

🌮What You’ll Need

Air Fryer or Ninja Foodi: You’ll need an air fryer or Ninja Foodi to reheat your tacos. I love my Ninja Foodi because it can do so much more than just reheat food, but you can use any air fryer you have.

Leftover Tacos: This method can be used to reheat both hard or soft tacos in the air fryer perfectly.

Aluminum Foil: While optional, aluminum foil can help with cleanup as it will catch any oil drips or melted cheese that may run out of the taco.

🔥How To Reheat Tacos In The Air Fryer

1️⃣Preheat the air fryer: Turn the temperature to 350F and preheat the air fryer for 3-5 minutes.

2️⃣Remove cold toppings: Using a spoon, remove any cold toppings from your taco including lettuce, tomato, or sour cream. Anything you don’t want to be warmed up, remove carefully so you can put it back on.

3️⃣Arrange the tacos: Once the air fryer is preheated, add the tacos in a single layer laying on their side or standing straight up if the shape allows. Though optional, you can place them on top of foil before adding them to the air fryer to help with cleanup.

4️⃣Reheat the tacos: Set the timer for 5 minutes but check at the 3-minute mark. Depending on how big or stuffed the tacos are, they may need the full 5 minutes or just a few.

5️⃣Remove and serve: Once your tacos are fully heated through, remove using tongs. Add your cold toppings back to the top and serve while warm.

👩🏻‍🍳Tips & Tricks

  • If you’re reheating a soft taco, you may want to spread it open before reheating to expose the fillings to heat. If it is closed together, it may only reheat the outside tortilla.
  • Make sure you place the tacos in a single layer at the bottom of the air fryer basket to ensure they reheat evenly.
  • If you’re reheating multiple tacos, they may not all fit in the air fryer at once. You can reheat them in batches.
  • All air fryers vary in temperature. Starting at 350F for 3-5 minutes will work for most tacos but you may need to adjust the time and temperature depending on how big your taco is and if it’s hard or soft.
