Expert Tips

  • Air fryer temperature control settings vary according to brand and model. If your air fryer does not have the exact temperature setting called for in the recipe, consult your manual for suggested temperature settings.
  • Make it your own! Use different taco toppings, or be lazy and skip the cheese and toppings entirely. The plain taco fries make a perfect side for tacos, burritos and more.
  • Shaking is essential to crispy fries. When food touches in the air fryer basket, it cannot crisp fully, so it must be shaken or turned often.
