  • Stir and add the beef taco meat into your taco boats. Add grated cheese to the top of them and place them in the air fryer basket.

  • Serve.


We used a box of 12 Barquitas in this recipe from the Old El Paso range. I believe there are in some supermarkets. If you can’t get them use taco shells or make your own tortillas and transform them into boats.
I used frozen sweetcorn, but you could also use canned.
There is only a small amount of tinned tomatoes in this recipe as you don’t want a Bolognese. If its too dry you can add in extra. Or replace it with a salsa instead.
I recommend this Mexican seasoning, or you can make your own.
For quality minced beef (ground beef) I recommend Butcher Box they also deliver direct to your door with no delivery charge.
The cake pan we recommend is this one, its bigger than the classic air fryer baking pan and better in our opinion for air fryer cooking.
