Cook until golden brown, 3-4 minutes longer. If desired, serve avocado slices with lime wedges, salsa, pico de gallo or ranch dressing.
Air-Fryer Avocado Fries Tips

How ripe should avocados be when making air-fryer avocado fries?

These air-fryer avocado fries are a great way to use avocados that aren’t quite ripe enough for guacamole yet. You want them to be able to hold up enough to be cut, breaded and fried, so stick with ones that are still slightly firm.

How can you make air-fryer avocado fries your own?

This recipe is seasoned with garlic powder and chipotle pepper, but you can swap those spices out for ones you love. Try sprinkling in some homemade taco seasoning instead or use seasoned breadcrumbs instead of cornmeal. If you like extra crunch, swap the cornmeal for panko breadcrumbs.
