Air-Fryer Black Bean Chimichangas

Total Time

Prep: 20 min. Cook: 5 min./batch

These chimichangas get a little love from the air fryer so they're much healthier than deep-fried chimichangas. Black beans provide protein, and it's a smart way to use up leftover rice. —Kimberly Hammond, Kingwood, Texas

  • 2 cans (15 ounces each) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 package (8.8 ounces) ready-to-serve brown rice
  • 2/3 cup frozen corn
  • 2/3 cup minced fresh cilantro
  • 2/3 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 whole wheat tortillas (8 inches), warmed if necessary
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil
  • Optional: Guacamole and salsa


  1. Preheat air fryer to 400°. In a large microwave-safe bowl, mix beans, rice and corn; microwave, covered, until heated through, 4-5 minutes, stirring halfway. Stir in cilantro, green onions and salt.
  2. To assemble, spoon 3/4 cup bean mixture across the center of each tortilla. Fold bottom and sides of tortilla over filling and roll up. Brush with olive oil.
  3. In batches, place, seam side down, in greased air fryer. Cook until golden brown and crispy, 2-3 minutes. If desired, serve with guacamole and salsa.
