You may have already experimented trying to make nachos in the air fryer, so please let me know what your experiences have been. I am always looking for suggestions on how to do things better, or differently.

One of the other bonuses of cooking nachos in the air fryer (besides less time and power usage) is it is generally easier to clean up, as well as prepare. I always line my drip pans with foil and use Pyrex storage containers to cook in when not using the trays. The advantage of cooking in Pyrex is that you can simply put a lid on it and store any leftovers in the refrigerator without using any additional pots or pans, or storage containers.

I hope you enjoy this air fryer nachos recipe. Please let me know what you think by leaving me a comment below. I would love to hear any thoughts, suggestions, or questions that you may have.

  • Air Fryer, or Oven (Add 50 Degrees)


  • 1 bag Tortilla Chips
  • 1 jar Salsa
  • 1 bag Taco / Nacho Shredded Cheese


  • Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees.
  • While air fryer is preheating, pour chips into an oven safe Pyrex dish forming one layer. Top with the salsa of your preference, using a small spoon to distribute equally. Pour as much cheese as you like to cover the chips and salsa.
  • Cook for 1 minute.
    Note: if you like your cheese to me slightly more melted, add an additional minute or more based on your personal preference.


All air fryers cook at different speeds.  These recipes are meant to be a general guide.  Cooking times depend on various factors including thickness, cut, and type of meat used.  I use an Instant Pot Vortex Plus shelf air fryer.  If you’re using something different, especially a bucket type air fryer, I advise keeping an eye on food so it doesn’t under, or overcook.
