  1. Prepare the air fryer basket with olive oil nonstick cooking spray or line basket with parchment paper.
  2. Add the tater tots in a single layer into the basket.
  3. Air fry the frozen tater tots at 400 degrees F for 12-14 minutes, or until crispy and golden brown.
  4. Top the cooked tater tots with crispy bacon pieces, shredded cheese, and jalapeno slices.
  5. Air fry for an additional 2 minutes at 400 degrees F, until cheese is fully melted, and tater tot batch is golden brown.
  6. Carefully remove and serve on a hot plate to keep cheese melted.

Optional Favorite Dipping Sauce: Ranch dressing, creamy queso, barbecue sauce, hot sauce or chili cheese dip.
Optional Additional Favorite Toppings: Green onion, refried beans, sour cream, gooey cheese sauce, black beans, avocado slices or chopped parsley.
Cooking Tips: Cook bacon in air fryer before tater tots because it will save time and add a bit of extra flavor to the tater tots.
Substitutions: Use sharp cheddar cheese, American cheese, Colby jack cheese or any other good melty cheese in this recipe.
I make this recipe in my Cosori 5.8 qt. air fryer. Depending on your air fryer, size and wattages, cooking time may need to be adjusted 1-2 minutes.
