Air Fryer Taco Puffs Recipe

Air Fryer Taco Puffs Recipe

I make these puffs ahead of time and keep them in the refrigerator until I’m ready to pop them in the air fryer. A helpful hint: Plain refrigerated biscuits seal together better than buttermilk types.




  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • ½ cup chopped onion
  • 1 envelope taco seasoning
  • 2 tubes (16.3 oz. each) large refrigerated flaky biscuits
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

1. In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink, 5-7 minutes, breaking into crumbles; drain. Add taco seasoning and prepare according to package directions. Cool slightly.

2. Preheat air fryer to 350°. Flatten half the biscuits into 4-in. circles. Spoon ¼ cup meat mixture onto each circle; sprinkle each with ¼ cup cheese. Flatten remaining biscuits; place over filling and pinch edges to seal tightly.

3. In batches, place puffs in a single layer on greased tray in air-fryer basket. Cook until golden brown and puffed, 10-15 minutes.
