Tutorial On Making Air Fryer Chicken Quesadillas:


  • 2 flour tortillas fajita size
  • 1/2 cup chopped cooked chicken
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tsp olive oil

Optional Toppings:

  • Guacamole
  • Sour Cream
  • Greek Yogurt
  • Salsa


Start by brushing the tortillas using olive oil.  Then, flip the tortillas so the side with olive oil is on the bottom.

Next, spread refried beans over half of the tortilla.  Now, sprinkle the cheese on top of the beans.

After that, carefully fold the tortilla in half so that none of the ingredients escape.

Once, you’ve folded both of the tortillas, place them beside each other in the air fryer.

Then, place a metal rack on top of the tortillas pressing them a little bit.

Cook the chicken quesadillas in the air fryer at 375 °F for approximately 4 minutes.

Now flip the quesadillas over to the other side and cook them for an additional 4 minutes.

Once the quesadillas have finished cooking, take them out of the air fryer and slice them into wedges.

Finally, serve with your favorite toppings. Some recommendations are guacamole, sour cream, greek yogurt, and salsa, but you can use whatever you want, go crazy with it!
