Air Fryer Baked Potatoes

Potatoes. We have an abundance of potatoes at our house, namely because my Irish husband loves potatoes as much as I love rice... so I try to incorporate potatoes into our meals throughout the week. Sometimes, potatoes are simply enough and can easily be a meal on it's own. I've forgotten how much I love baked potatoes and stuffing or filling them up with whatever I have on hand. To make it easier, I've been making them in our Instant Pot Vortex air fryer (or any airfryer) because it comes out slightly crisp on the outside and creamy on the inside. The hardest part of making Air Fryer Baked Potatoes is deciding what to stuff/fill them with! What do you usually stuff/fill your potatoes with? Here's how I make them...
