Air Fryer Frozen Burritos

Welcome to air fryer frozen burritos. The latest addition to our air fryer Mexican food here at Recipe This.

If you have not tried them yet our favourite Mexican air fryer foods this year is our air fryer chimichangas and air fryer chicken taquitos.

When I think of Mexican food, my first thought is a yummy, crispy burrito loaded with as many fillings that will fit inside the burrito without it all falling out.

At this time of the year here in Portugal there is a summer festival that we enjoy going to. It is created for British Expats with a LOT of local businesses selling their services. You will see jacuzzis for sale, plenty of window and blind companies for home renovations and a great dog show.

But what I enjoy most is the food court. With a special area just dedicated to food, there will be something for everyone.

My hubby, the Mexican hater that prefers British food will always see if the Fish & Chips is on. It rarely is and he is often disappointed.

Though last year I found a small little Mexican street food cart that sold the most delicious homemade burritos.

One for me of course and another for my burrito loving daughter. You see I waited 13 years to have a daughter that would share my love for every bit of food that Dominic hates.

While Dominic moaned yet again that Fish & Chips was not on, me and my daughter enjoyed delicious burritos in the Portuguese sunshine.

Then we finished with homemade crepes that all the family love.

Can You Air Fry A Frozen Burrito?

Yes you can. You can air fry a frozen burrito directly in the air fryer basket. No need to wait for the burrito to thaw first, as you can successfully cook frozen burritos in the air fryer from frozen.

They take a little longer than a just prepped homemade burrito does, but they are still delicious and a fantastic time saver.

How Do You Keep Frozen Burritos From Getting Soggy?

To stop frozen burritos from getting soggy you air fry them! When you cook a frozen burrito in the air fryer it creates a crispy coating that you forget you didn’t just cook from scratch.

We experimented with several different frozen burritos in the air fryer and found it was a universal cooking time and temperature.

We tried the following frozen burritos in the air fryer:

  • Air Fryer Frozen Bean Burrito
  • Air Fryer Frozen Breakfast Burritos
  • Air Fryer Frozen Burritos El Monterey

Can You Reheat A Burrito In An Air Fryer?

Yes you can. The air fryer is ideal for reheating your leftover burritos. Not that I ever have any burritos left, but you might!

I recommend reheating your air fryer burritos for 5 minutes at 160c/320f. Or to speed up the process slide them in half and cook for just 4 minutes.

    Yum girl, YUM! We had some homemade burritos at the weekend that was to die for — this will help me reheat the leftovers from frozen.

    I never thought of cooking my frozen burritos in the air fryer. That will be perfect for the homemade burritos that i make and then store in the freezer for later.

    • Hi Ty,

      The egg wash is not compulsory just personal preference. We love the colour it gives to pastries as they can look pretty bland. Oil would do the same but would take longer to cook and then over cook the burrito 🙂
