CALORIES: 104 kcal


  • 1 Air Fryer


  • 2-4 flour tortillas
  • ½ cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or cooking spray


  1. Remove tortillas from packaging and spray one side of each tortilla with cooking spray.
  2. Place each tortilla in air fryer basket, sprayed or brushed side down.
  3. Spread a thin layer of shredded cheese, and optional toppings on top of tortilla.
  4. Fold each tortilla in half and gently press together or seal them with a toothpick.
  5. Air fry at 350 degrees F for 8-10 minutes, flipping the tortilla halfway through cooking time, until you have a crispy tortilla that is golden brown. After two minutes of air frying, open basket and if tortillas have opened, gently press together. The melted cheese will now keep them sealed.
  6. Remove tortillas and serve immediately or let them rest on a wire rack to maintain crispiness.


For extra crispy tortillas spray basket with additional cooking spray.
To cut evenly and quickly use a pizza cutter.
Choice of fillings: refried beans, black beans, onions, bacon, fresh herbs, bell peppers, tomatoes, pepperoni, mushrooms, kale, black olives, chopped garlic. For a breakfast quesadilla, add scrambled eggs.

Optional spices: cayenne pepper, garlic powder, curry powder, red pepper flakes or Italian seasoning.
