Cindy - Air Fryer Eats


  • Skillet
  • Air fryer


  • 1 tsp Cooking Oil
  • 1 ½ cups Cooked Chicken Breast shredded
  • 1 can Chopped green chiles undrained
  • 1 packet Taco Seasoning
  • ½ Lime juiced
  • 4 8-inch flour tortillas
  • ¾ cup Refried Beans
  • 1 cup Cheddar jack cheese shredded
  • Sour Cream for serving
  • Pico de Gallo for serving
  • Fresh Cilantro for serving


  • In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add chicken, chilies, taco seasoning, water, and lime juice, stirring to coat. Cook 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently, until chicken is heated through.
  • Place a tortilla on a work surface, and spread 3 tablespoons of the refried beans in the middle.
  • Top with about ¼ of the chicken mixture (¾ cup) and sprinkle with 2 tablespoons of cheese.
  • Fold sides of tortilla in. Fold bottom over filling and sides, then roll up tightly. Set aside, seam side down, and repeat with remaining tortillas.
  • Lightly spray the inside of the air fryer basket with cooking spray, as well as the outside of each filled tortilla. Place 2 chimichangas, seam side down, in the basket, and cook at 400 degrees F for 7-8 minutes, flipping halfway through, until lightly browned and heated through. Repeat cooking with remaining chimichangas.
  • Serve with sour cream, pico de gallo, and cilantro.



  • Cook only two at a time, avoid letting the chimichangas touch each other. 
  • Pro Tip: This recipe can be made in the air fryer unit with a basket or the air fryer oven. If you are using the air fryer oven, use the middle rack and select the "Air Fry" function.
