Air Fryer Quesadilla

  • Author: Kathleen
  • Total Time: 10 minutes
  • Yield: 1-2 servings 1x


Air Fryer Quesadilla gives you crispy, golden tortillas and melty cheese with only about 5 minutes of cook time! By making quesadillas in your air fryer you can set it and walk away compared to standing by the stove.


  • Two 6-inch flour tortillas
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese, such as Monterey Jack
  • 1/4 cup shredded chicken
  • Cooking Spray


  1. Assemble Quesadillas Spray your quesadilla basket with cooking spray then add a tortilla. Spread cheese and shredded chicken on one half of the tortillas (I like to do cheese, then chicken, then a little more cheese). Fold over the tortilla, carefully, and close with two toothpicks. Repeat with a second tortilla.
  2. Spray Quesadillas – Lightly spray the tops with cooking spray. This helps get them nice and golden. 
  3. Air Fry – Air fry for about 6 minutes at 400 degrees F. The tortillas should be golden brown and the cheese should be melted. 
  4. Serve – Allow to cool for a minute or two then then cut and serve.
