Air Fryer Taco Kabobs Recipe

Air Fryer Taco Kabobs Recipe

We typically think of the grill when making kabobs but an air fryer does an equally good job in the same amount of time. Sometimes I’ll add a drop or two of liquid smoke to the marinade to give it that grilled flavor.




  • 1 envelope taco seasoning
  • 1 cup tomato juice
  • 2 Tbsp. canola oil
  • 2 lbs. beef top sirloin steak, cut into 1-in. cubes
  • 1 medium green pepper, cut into chunks
  • 1 medium sweet red pepper, cut into chunks
  • 1 large onion, cut into wedges
  • 12 cherry tomatoes
  • Optional: Salsa con queso or sour cream

1. In a large shallow dish, combine taco seasoning, tomato juice and oil; mix well. Remove ½ cup for basting; refrigerate. Add the beef to shallow dish and turn to coat. Cover; refrigerate at least 5 hours.

2. Preheat air fryer to 400° for 10 minutes. Drain and discard marinade from beef. On 6 metal or soaked wooden skewers that fit in your air fryer, alternately thread beef, peppers, onion and tomatoes. In batches, place skewers in a single layer on greased tray in air-fryer basket. Cook, turning and basting occasionally with reserved marinade, until meat reaches desired doneness, 8-10 minutes. Serve with salsa con queso or sour cream if desired.
