  1. Nonstick cooking spray
  2. Three cups of corn tortilla chips roughly three handfuls, or two ounces
  3. For dairy-free diets, use vegan cheese instead of 1/2 cup of shredded cheese.
  4. Half a cup of rinsed and drained canned black beans
  5. Two teaspoons of pickled jalapenos (omit if desired)
  6. 2 green onions, thinly sliced
  7. 1/4 cup prepared salsa (optional, for topping)


  1. Use some aluminium foil to line the air fryer’s basket. To create space around the foil’s edges, curl up the edges. Lightly mist the foil’s bottom with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Place the chips in the basket, attempting to distribute them as much as you can (some overlap is acceptable).
  3. Next, top the chips with half of the cheese, black beans, jalapenos, and green onions. Add the remaining cheese on top.
  4. Preheat the oven to 325°F and let the cheese melt for 5 minutes.
  5. With a spatula, open the basket and move the nachos to a serving tray.
  6. Serve hot, with optional salsa drizzled over or on the side.


  • If you’d like, you can replace the foil in your air fryer basket with a parchment paper liner.
  • Any kind of shredded cheese will work, such as Monterey Jack or cheddar. Try the Daiya brand of dairy-free shredded cheese alternative, which is available in most grocery stores’ refrigerated department.
  • The best time to serve these nachos is immediately after they’re cooked.
  • You can omit the black beans if you’re not a fan. Alternatively, you might use pinto or white beans or any variety of cooked beans in their place.
  • Certain models of air fryers require preheating. To find out if you need to preheat your specific model before using it, please consult the owner’s manual.
