Air Fryer Frozen Burritos
Welcome to air fryer frozen burritos. The latest addition to our air fryer Mexican food here at Recipe This.
When I think of Mexican food, my first thought is a yummy, crispy burrito loaded with as many fillings that will fit inside the burrito without it all falling out.
At this time of the year here in Portugal there is a summer festival that we enjoy going to. It is created for British Expats with a LOT of local businesses selling their services. You will see jacuzzis for sale, plenty of window and blind companies for home renovations and a great dog show.
But what I enjoy most is the food court. With a special area just dedicated to food, there will be something for everyone.
My hubby, the Mexican hater that prefers British food will always see if the Fish & Chips is on. It rarely is and he is often disappointed.
Though last year I found a small little Mexican street food cart that sold the most delicious homemade burritos.
One for me of course and another for my burrito loving daughter. You see I waited 13 years to have a daughter that would share my love for every bit of food that Dominic hates.
While Dominic moaned yet again that Fish & Chips was not on, me and my daughter enjoyed delicious burritos in the Portuguese sunshine.
Then we finished with homemade crepes that all the family love.
