How To Make Air Fryer Quesadilla

This air fryer quesadilla is a great way to use leftover meat. Each bite is loaded with tender chicken and gooey Mexican cheese!

Prep: 5 mins
Cook: 10 mins
Total: 15 mins


  • 2 corn and flour blend tortillas
  • 6 oz chicken, or choice of protein, cooked and shredded
  • 2 oz Mexican cheese, shredded
  • olive oil spray, or olive oil, for brushing the tortillas


  1. Wrap the tortillas in a paper towel and microwave for 15 to 20 seconds.

  2. Add 1 ounce of cheese to each tortilla followed by 3 ounces of chicken to one half. Fold to close.

  3. Spray the air fryer basket and the top of each quesadilla with olive oil spray or brush both sides of each quesadilla with olive oil before adding to the basket.

  4. Place the quesadillas in the basket and use an air fryer or oven safe rack to keep quesadillas closed.

  5. Air fry for 8 to 10 minutes at 400 degrees F, flipping halfway through for even crispness. The rack can be removed once the cheese has melted and sealed the quesadillas.

  6. Serve and enjoy!
