Air Fryer Chicken Burritos

Sometimes I need a quick and easy dinner - whether I got home later - or just forgot to take something out - I just need food in my belly quick! These air fryer chicken burritos are in for the clutch any night of the week! 

You'll have dinner on the table in 10 minutes with these burritos! And the best part is - everybody can customize them! If you like chicken but your kids don't - let them have just cheese & salsa! Let's get started! 

How do you make burritos in the air fryer? 

Anybody can pop a frozen burrito in the air fryer - but let's make our own! They'll be healthier and taste better. I lay out the small tortilla and spread on cream cheese (that's the glue to hold them shut). Then top with chicken, cheese and salsa! Roll and air fry.

There are a few tips to making a burrito that will stay together: 
- Spread the cream cheese on the whole tortilla
- Put your toppings on 2/3 of the tortilla - leave one edge with cream cheese. That way when you roll it - the cream cheese edge serves as the glue to hold the burrito together
- Go light on the toppings - if you fill it too much - it's too hard to roll 
- Don't forget the sauce! You want your burritos to be juicy and cheesy - be sure to put a little salsa in them too

How do you make an easy dipping sauce? 

The easiest sauce I make is salsa & sour cream! Just mix them together in a bowl - it's the best dip you'll have! It's great on chips, nachos and these air fryer burritos!
