How To Cook Frozen Fries In An Air Fryer
Air fryer frozen french fries takes only 4 short steps from start to finish.
Step 1 – Pre-heat the air fryer to 400 and spray down the basket with cooking spray.
Step 2 – Add the fries to the basket and spritz with cooking spray and sprinkle with salt.
Step 3 – Cook for 20 minutes, tossing halfway through.
Step 4- Remove from the air fryer and enjoy.
The optional step is making the Chipotle Mayo. That only requires mixing all the ingredients together and refrigerating for hopefully an hour before enjoying. The wait time isn’t mandatory, but the flavor will be much more robust.
How Long To Air Fry Frozen French Fries?
Air Fryer Frozen French Fries time clocks in at just 20 minutes plus the two minutes it takes to prep the basket and fries. You’ll be grubbing down on a plate before the first quarter of your game is over.
