I like to make these air-fryer quesadillas for party appetizers. Just cut them into thinner triangles. You can also switch up the cheese and the salsa to suit your taste. —Terri Keeney, Greeley, Colorado


  • 1-1/2 cups shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 1/2 cup salsa
  • 4 flour tortillas (8 inches), warmed
  • Cooking spray


  1. Preheat air fryer to 375°. Combine cheese and salsa; spread over half of each tortilla. Fold tortilla over. In batches, place tortillas in a single layer on a greased tray in air-fryer basket; spritz with cooking spray. Cook until golden brown and cheese has melted, 5-7 minutes. Cut into wedges.

Air-Fryer Quesadillas Tips

What else can you put in Air-Fryer Quesadillas?

The fun part about these quesadillas is that they’re so customizable. The cheese and salsa pair nicely with most other fillings, such as shredded chicken or pork, taco meat, or fajita veggies. Cilantro, pickled jalapenos and onion are flavorful additions, too! Check out our other favorite quesadilla recipes for more inspiration.

What can you serve with Air-Fryer Quesadillas?

What’s a quesadilla without something to dip it into? Sour cream (or plain Greek yogurt) is a classic option, as well as guacamole or salsa. If you want to round out your quesadillas with a side dish or two, consider refried beans and Mexican rice.

How do you reheat Air-Fryer Quesadillas?

You can reheat your quesadillas the same way you made them: in the air fryer! Preheat the appliance to 375°F and toss them back in for just a few minutes. They'll be ready to go before you can even make yourself a margarita to go alongside them!
