Make tasty Gluten-Free Air Fryer Cheesy Enchiladas!


  • 1 Pound Ground Beef
  • 1 Package Taco Seasoning or Gluten Free Taco Seasoning
  • 8 Gluten Free Tortillas
  • 1 Can Black Beans, Drained & Rinsed
  • 1 Can Diced Tomatoes, Drained
  • 1 Can Mild Chopped Green Chilies, Drained
  • 1 Can Red Enchilada Sauce
  • 1 Cup Shredded Mexican Cheese
  • 1 Cup Chopped Fresh Cilantro
  • 1/2 Cup Sour Cream


  1. Begin by browning the ground beef in a medium sized skillet.
  2. Add in the taco seasoning as instructed on the package.
  3. Build each tortilla by adding beef, beans, tomatoes, and chilies.
  4. Place each one inside the basket of the air fryer, if preferred; line the basket with foil first.
  5. Once all the enchiladas are made, pour the enchilada sauce evenly over them.
  6. Evenly add the cheese on top.
  7. Cook on 355* for 5 Minutes in the Air Fryer.

Depending on the size of your Air Fryer, it may be necessary to cook in 2 batches. Cook for an additional 1-2 minutes if cheese is not fully melted as all air fryer cook times vary just a bit.

Nutritional information will vary based on exact amounts used, for instance, you will not likely use the entire can of beans on 1 enchilada.
