- Tortilla chips
- Shredded cheese (cheddar, Monterey Jack, or your favorite)
- Toppings of your choice (sliced jalapeños, diced tomatoes, diced onions, black olives, sour cream, guacamole, salsa, etc.)
- Optional: cooked ground beef, chicken, or vegetarian meat substitute
- Preheat your air fryer to 350°F (180°C).
- While the air fryer is preheating, arrange a single layer of tortilla chips in the air fryer basket. Be sure not to overcrowd the basket; you may need to cook in batches.
- Sprinkle a generous amount of shredded cheese over the chips, making sure to cover them evenly. If you’re adding any cooked meat, spread it evenly over the cheese.
- Carefully place the loaded air fryer basket into the preheated air fryer and cook for about 4-6 minutes or until the cheese is melted and the chips are crispy. Keep a close eye on them as cooking times can vary depending on your air fryer.
- Using tongs or a spatula, carefully transfer the nachos to a serving plate.
- Add your favorite toppings like sliced jalapeños, diced tomatoes, onions, black olives, sour cream, guacamole, and salsa.
- Serve immediately and enjoy your air fryer nachos while they’re hot and gooey.
