  • Cooking spray

Supplies

    • Large mixing bowl

 

What size tortillas do I need?

Generally, you can use any size of tortilla you want for this recipe, however, I find that the 8-inch tortillas seem to work the best and fit the best in the air fryer.

What kind of chicken to use for the enchiladas 

You can make this recipe as simple as you want it when it comes to the chicken. You can make the chicken breast and shred or chop the chicken up. 

Another option is that you can use canned chicken as well or even a rotisserie chicken too! 

Either way, it needs to be cooked before it is rolled into the enchiladas.

 

How to Make Air Fryer Crispy Chicken Enchilada Wraps:

Step 1: Make the filling

Start by combining the chicken, rice, beans, enchilada sauce, green chilies, cilantro, lime juice, cumin, oregano, chile powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper together in a large mixing bowl.

Step 2: Make up the enchiladas

Then, lay out the tortillas, layer about 1/4 cup of cheese, then about a 1/2 cup of the filling in the center of each tortilla.

After you have the chicken mixture on each tortilla, fold one side of the tortilla over the filling, followed by the other side (so that the tortilla is folded into thirds). 

Press lightly to flatten. It should be thick and flat, not rounded like a burrito.

Step 3: Cook the crispy chicken enchiladas

Now that the enchiladas are all rolled, spray the air fryer basket with oil. 

Place the wraps in the air fryer basket. Be sure to use toothpicks or an air fryer safe rack to keep the tortilla from flying open if needed. 

Then spray the tops of the wraps with cooking spray and cook them for about 5-6 min at 350 degrees F or 175 degrees C.

Once they are done cooking, serve warm with sour cream, salsa, or other toppings of your choice!
