Air Fryer Quesadillas

Air Fryer Quesadillas – a super quick and easy dinner you can make any night of the week. Super crispy quesadillas that you can fill with whatever you want come together in just minutes!


  • 2 tortillas
  • 1/3 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 4 oz cooked chicken or other protein
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil


  1. Arrange tortillas in front of you on a cutting board or a plate
  2. Put a little bit of cheese over half of each tortilla. Layer whatever protein and veggies you are using over the cheese. Finish with just a little bit more cheese and fold the tortilla in half.
  3. Brush a little bit of oil over the outside of the tortilla and arrange in your air fryer basket.
  4. Cook at 400º for 5 minutes. Flip the quesadilla and cook for an additional 4 minutes until they are golden and crispy.
  5. Remove from air fryer and slice to serve.


If you have and Instant Pot, and the little metal trivet that came it with, it is great to put on top of the tortillas as it cooks on the first side, to help them stay closed. Depending on how full you get them, they do have a tendency to puff up and open a little. This isn’t necessary, it can just help a little.
