Air Fryer Plate Nachos are a great option for a quick weeknight dinner that can easily feed a crowd!

If you are ready for a great air fryer recipe, these Air Fryer Plate Nachos are the perfect choice.  I have to say that these were pretty fabulous especially on a busy weeknight.

I added all the nachos and toppings to the air fryer, and then simply air fried them for a few minutes to make them warm and toasty.

Once they were done, we put them on the counter and everyone dug in!

Sometimes I just need meals like this that everyone helps themselves to.  Don’t you?  It’s especially nice this week as we head into summer.

Our evenings become long and we stay up for a while just spending time outside.  I love that I can take a plate of these air fryer plate nachos and place them in the center of the patio table and everyone can help themselves.

That means the kids can play, take a break, eat a bite, and go back to playing.  My husband and I can sit and talk, which is much needed after long days with the kids.

I need adult conversation too, and I’m okay with admitting that.  It’s nice to talk to him and especially in the evenings as the sun is setting.

It’s just so much cooler here in Oklahoma in the evenings and actually doable to go outside and enjoy the fresh air.
