Air Fryer: Chicken Enchiladas

If you're looking to change things up a bit for Taco Tuesdays, how about enchiladas?! I don't make enchiladas as often as I should, but after making them in the air fryer, I have planned to include these in a normal rotation. These air fryer enchiladas are so good and easy! They're bursting with flavor! Making them in the air fryer gives them a little crunch on the outside, yet really tender and gooey with cheese on the inside. 

Air Fryer Chicken Enchiladas

1 package of soft flour Tortillas (20 count)
1 Rotisserie chicken
1 sweet onion - chopped
1 large can of Mild Enchilada sauce (28 ounce)
1/4 cup Brown sugar
1 package of shredded Colby Jack cheese
Green onions - chopped fine - to top
Cherry tomatoes - washed - as a side dish


1. Pull the chicken from the Rotisserie chicken (or you can buy already pulled Rotisserie chicken), and place it in a bowl. Add the chopped onion and toss to combine. Lay the Tortillas out on a plate; add the chicken and onion mixture in the middle of the tortilla. Sprinkle the chicken and onion mixture with a little cheese. Fold the Tortilla sides in, covering the center filling to create the enchilada and set aside. Repeat with remaining tortillas.

2. Line the bottom of the air fryer basket with foil. Transfer the enchiladas, folded side down, in the foil-lined air fryer, being careful to keep the sides folded under. Continue until you have the air fryer full of Enchiladas. Place the enchilada sauce in a large heavy saucepan and add the brown sugar. Bring to a boil and turn off heat. 

3. Cover the enchiladas in sauce and top with cheese. Set the air fryer on 350 degrees and air fry for 15 minutes.  

4. Transfer the enchiladas to serving plates and garnish with chopped green onions. Serve with cherry tomatoes, extra sauce, and Tortilla chips.  Enjoy!

Makes 12 - 16 Enchiladas (if you fill them really full you'll get about 12, if you fill them a little less, you'll get about 16)

NOTE: Keep making and filling the tortillas until all ingredients have been used.  You may have to Air Fry in two batches to finish preparing all enchiladas.
