prepration time:



  • 3-4 cups tortilla chips
  • ½ cup cooked ground beef
  • ½ cup black beans canned, drained and rinsed
  • 2 tablespoon salsa
  •  cups shredded cheese


  • sliced jalapeno peppers
  • sliced black olives
  • diced tomatoes
  • chopped spring onions the green part


    • Line the air fryer basket or tray with parchment paper liner or a piece of aluminum foil.
    • Layer the tortilla chips, overlapping each other. Top with cooked ground beef and black beans.

      • Drizzle salsa over the meat and beans. You don’t want to use a lot of salsa as it will make the chips soggy.
      • Sprinkle the shredded cheese on top covering all the ingredients. Add jalapenos and olives. You can add another layer of chips and toppings if you like.
      • Air fry nachos at 350˚F for 3 to 4 minutes until the cheese is melted and chips are crispy. Serve warm topped with diced tomatoes, spring onions and a dollop of sour cream.


        • You can cook ground beef in the air fryer with taco seasoning to use in this recipe. Place the ground beef in the air fryer basket, break the meat with a wooden spatula and air fry at 375˚F for 3 minutes. Stir the meat and air fry for one minute. Add the seasoning and Air fry until cooked.
        • Other great options for toppings include diced onions, fresh parsley, fresh cilantro, diced avocado, pico de gallo or guacamole.

        Store – Nachos taste best when they’re fresh out of the air fryer. Store leftover nachos, in the fridge in an airtight container for a day. I don’t recommend storing them more than a day or two as you’ll end up with soggy nachos and it’s hard to make them crispy.

        Reheat – The best way to reheat nachos is to air fry them. To reheat nachos, air fry them at 350˚F for 2-3 minutes until they’re crispy.
