Air-Fryer Churros Tips
Can you make air-fryer churros ahead of time?
You can make the dough a day or two in advance—just keep it refrigerated in an airtight container. Because the churros are best served warm, though, we recommend air-frying them right before serving.
What are some good dips to serve with churros?
Churros are designed for dunking! Serve them with Mexican Chocolate Dip
, Salted Caramel Sauce
or any other sweet dip that suits your fancy.
What's the best way to grease an air-fryer basket?
To grease, rub a small amount of oil on the bottom of the basket. We suggest using an oil with a high smoke point, such as safflower or soybean. For more, check out these air-fryer hacks
Should air-fryer churros be as crispy as deep-fried churros?
Your air-fryer churros likely won’t be quite as crunchy as the deep-fried version. They’ll have a slightly softer texture but will still be delicious!
