  • 2 Tablespoons Taco Seasoning
  • 8 tortillas corn or flour

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Add the ground chicken to a skillet and cook over medium heat until fully cooked. Stir in the Taco seasoning.
  2. Top each tortilla with seasoned chicken.
  3. Add black beans and continue building the enchiladas with the remaining tortillas.
  4. Prepare the air fryer basket with a small sheet of foil that covers the bottom of the air fryer.
  5. Roll each of the enchiladas and place them into the air fryer on top of the foil.
  6. Once you have finished adding the enchiladas, top the enchiladas with the enchilada sauce.
  7. Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the top.
  8. Air fry the enchiladas at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 5 minutes. Carefully remove the enchiladas from the air fryer.
  9. Optional: top with any remaining cheese, sour cream, and fresh chopped cilantro.

NOTES:

If you want to change up the flavors of these delicious enchiladas, you can turn these into air fryer cheesy ground beef enchiladas by changing out the chicken to beef. (I tend to go back and forth between beef and chicken because I’ll buy whatever is cheaper at the store. I can say that air fryer cheesy beef enchiladas are really good, too!)
You can add some Mexican rice to the mixture if you’d like, or just keep it as a separate side dish as well. Minute white or brown rice is fast and always pairs well.
If you want to make this low carb, use zucchini strips in the place of tortillas! This really is really versatile and easy to change up. This is also a great way to add more veggies into the day!
This recipe was made using a 1700 watt 5.8 qt basket style Cosori air fryer. If using a different brand of air fryer, you may need to adjust the cooking time accordingly.
