Air Fryer Quesadilla
How to make a quesadilla in the air fryer.
- 2 flour tortillas
- 3/4 cup shredded cheese
- olive oil
Lightly spray one side of tortilla with olive oil. Lay the tortilla, oil side down, in the air fryer basket. (You could replace olive oil with butter if you prefer.)
Sprinkle one side with cheese being sure not to add too much cheese. (If you are adding something like cooked chicken or beef, start with a thin layer of cheese, a layer of the filling, and then a little more cheese.)
Fold the tortilla in half. Cook at 350 degrees F for 3 minutes, remove toothpicks, flip the quesadillas over and cook another 2-3 minutes or until cheese is melted.
- If you want to add extra flavor, replace the olive oil with butter. Spread a thin layer of butter on one side of the tortilla instead of the oil. This will add a rich flavor to the quesadilla.
- Be sure not to stuff the quesadilla with cheese. If you put too much, it will have a hard time melting and might overflow out of the tortillas.
- Use a pizza cutter or knife to cut your quesadilla into triangle shapes.
