So, Why Air Fry Your Hot Dogs?
The simple reason is they taste amazing in the air fryer. I always make a batch for my kids during the winter in the air fryer rather than trek to the grill.

They taste amazing they are nice and seared on the outside but really juicy and flavorful on the inside.
There is virtually no cleanup. You literally either have to wash your basket or wash your tray, it’s that easy, and if you are like me, a busy mom, that is very important.
And the best part of cooking them in the air fryer vs. grill is if you want one, you cook for one!
How To Cook Hot Dogs in The Air Fryer?
There are only a few steps to get the perfect air fryer hot dog. Add your hot dogs to the air fryer basket or air fryer tray and set the temperature.
Some Important Notes:
Since air fryers work by circulating the air, it’s important not to overcrowd your basket or tray. You need to leave enough space around the hot dogs for the air to flow.
Ingredients Needed For Air Fryer Hot Dog Taquitos
- Corn Tortillas

How To Make Air Fryer Hot Dog Taquitos
Start by preheating your air fryer to 400 degrees F, air fryer sitting.
Place your tortillas into the microwave and microwave for about 30 seconds, or until you can wrap them around the hot dogs.
Sprinkle the cheese on top of the tortilla, and then add your hot dog. Wrap around and place seam side down into the air fryer basket, set the temperature to 10 to 12 minutes, or until they are cooked through. If you want, add some more cheese on top and air fry until the cheese is melted.
Some Pro Tips:
- You can use either corn or flour tortillas. The key to wrapping them up is to heat the tortillas until they can be easily be rolled.
- You can use any cheese you want, I used shredded cheddar cheese, but you can use Mexican Cheese, Colby, or any of your favorite cheeses.
- This recipe will work in all air fryer models, including Ninja Foodi, Instant Pot Vortex, and Instant Pot Crisp Lid.
- For best results, do not crowd the basket. Otherwise, the tortilla will not crisp up.
- If you want, brush olive oil on top of the tortillas to help them crisp up.
