Making the air fryer nachos is similar to making nachos in the oven but faster with a couple of tweaks! You can make nachos in air fryers for date night, Superbowl, or any occasion! They’re great for any get together! Lately, I’ve been making quite a few air fryer recipes for a couple of reasons: it’s super simple and I usually have a lot on the go so it makes my life easier. I use very little oil so it makes the recipes healthier and just as delicious!

How To Make Air Fryer Nachos

These air fryer nachos are super easy to make in 15 mins and it’ll impress everyone you make them for… if you don’t eat them all yourself first!

The key to any good air fryer nacho recipe is layering and this air fryer nacho recipe is no different! You gotta layer the chips, cheeze and ingredients so that when you eat the top layer you’re not just left with chips, you still have something to look forward to at the bottom!

  1. Prepare your ground round in a pan with a pack of taco seasoning.
  2. While ground round cooks chop your vegetables.
  3. Lay parchment paper at the bottom of the air fryer and poke some small holes in it to ensure proper airflow.
  4. Lay half your chips down on the parchment paper. Put half your toppings on top of the chips.
  5. Add the rest of the chips on top and then add the rest of your toppings on top.
  6. Put the nachos in the air fryer and turn on at 390 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
  7. Be careful when taking out the nachos, grab the corners of the parchment paper and slide onto a plate.

Which toppings you use are ultimately up to you! If you don’t like spice then don’t add jalapeños, some people don’t like olives so don’t add them (but like who doesn’t like olives?!) Here are some suggestions for other toppings you might like!

Kitchen Equipment I used for recipe:

  • Ninja Foodie 9-1 Air Fryer Unit – Okay I’ll be the first to admit I was an air fryer hater before but now I am the ultimate air fryer truther! This is the unit I use and it’s unreal because it comes with an instant pot, steamer, dehydrator, sautee, and more all in one unit! It comes in a couple of different sizes (I got the 8 quarts and it’s huge but I love it).
  • My all-time favorite bowl set – These bowls are shallow and wide so they make platting food super easy and they look great!
