A few things to remember when making burritos on an air fryer:

  • Preheat the air fryer. This will make cooking time much faster and you will achieve best results.
  • Don’t overcrowd the air fryer. Place just enough burritos to cook at one time, depending on the size of your appliance, we recommend 2 at a time.
  • If you want your burritos lightly crispy and golden on the outside you can add a coat of olive oil spray before placing them in the air fryer.

How to make it

  1. Preheat the air fryer for 4 minutes, 190 ˚C / 374°F.  Place the Refried Beans in a bowl (not necessary to reheat).
  2. Warm up a Burrito Wrap over a hot pan, just enough to make it slightly softer and easier to fold.
  3. Place the Burrito Wrap over a clean surface then add 1/3 of the beans, top it with 1/3 of the white rice, add 1/3 of the grated cheese and a few spoonful of Chipotle Salsa. Fold the edges of the burrito and then wrap tight (see video for reference), make two more burritos in the same way.
  4. Once they are ready, place the burritos in the air fryer, and cook them for 5 minutes at 180˚C.
  5. In the meantime prepare a quick guacamole in a bowl, combine the avocado, mash it roughly with a fork, then add the onion, tomato, lime juice, coriander, extra virgin olive oil, a pinch of salt and black pepper.
  6. Once the burritos are ready remove them from the air fryer tray. Cut them in half and serve them with the guacamole, spoonful of soured cream and more Chipotle Salsa on top.

How do you wrap a burrito?

Add a generous amount of grated cheese to the intersection of the ends just prior to finishing rolling. Lastly, place the tortilla, face down, in a air fryer. So, the cheese will melt and seal the burrito, preventing any ingredients from spilling.
