If you ever need a reason to grab an air fryer, this one is in the top tier of best things to cook. Simply create your favorite burrito, make sure its tightly wrapped, and then toss in the air fryer for 5-7 minutes for a lovely crisp finish. No oil needed, there’s usually plenty already in a regular flour tortilla.
Sure its not the greasy indulgent bomb of the deep fried variety – but its still a wonderful twist on a boring old burrito, and healthier to boot. I went veggie in the chimichanga picture above and used MorningStar Farms Crumbles with rice in the filling, with some McCormick Taco Seasoning.
To keep things getting too dry, some fresh pico de gallo, homemade guac and a dash of Wild Coyote lime-cilantro ranch.
Hi, I’m Stuart, nice to meet you! I’m the founder, writer and wrangler at Gastronomic SLC – Utah’s biggest and oldest online food magazine; I’m also a former restaurant critic of more than five years, working for the Salt Lake Tribune. I’ve worked extensively with multiple local publications from Visit Salt Lake to Salt Lake Magazine, not least helped to consult on national TV shows.
I’m a multiple-award winning journalist and have covered the Utah dining scene for the better part of fifteen years. I’m largely fueled by a critical obsession with rice, alliteration and the use of big words I don’t understand. I started Shop Smart to catalogue my adventures in the grocery store and kitchen.
