Perfect Nacho Snacks by Amy’s Kitchen!

Hey Everyone! A while ago, The Fisherman and I were lucky enough to find these Snacks in the grocery store! Oh, what a day that was! We both love finger foods, but until we found these, we hadn’t found any vegetarian options that resembled mini tacos or taquitos–our favorites!!

Finally, we were able to fill that void!! YAY!!

(Note: If you don’t know about Amy’s Kitchen, check out their website here! They offer lots of meal options (mostly frozen) that are vegetarian, and some are vegan, too!)

Just look at those golden brown, crispy bites of yumminess…and the flavor? They are amazing! The only “problem” was that just like pizza rolls, some snacks would pop open when heated in the oven! Annoying? Yes, but that goes with the territory when eating these kinds of snacks, right? Right?! That’s what I thought, too, but we were WRONG!!

Yep, I said it!!

The box says to cook these in the oven at 350 for 13-15 minutes, and don’t get me wrong, they come out good. In fact, I’ve been cooking them that way for over a year, and we love them! BUT…the best way to cook these yummy morsels is in the Air Fryer!

I recently purchased this Air Fryer, and it’s the best thing ever!! If you don’t have one, you should get one…like now! Trust me on this!

Here’s how to make Perfect Nacho Snacks (by Amy’s) in your Air Fryer:

(Note: We usually make two boxes and have these for dinner! One box is 460 calories, and when paired with 2 tablespoons of light sour cream, you have a 500 calorie meal! Have extra calories, or feel like eating more? Add a quarter cup of shredded cheese to your plate for dipping–we like Colby-Jack the best!)

Step 1: Pour one box of Nacho Snacks into the Air Fryer, and arrange the snacks so they are laying in a single layer. (It doesn’t matter if they are right-side up or not!)

Step 2: Heat the snacks at 350 degrees for 4 minutes. When the 4 minutes are up, shake the basket and heat for another 4 minutes. (Try to get the snacks to lay in a single layer after shaking, but don’t worry if a few are being difficult–go ahead and cook them for the next round.)

Step 3: After the second set of 4 minutes, dump the snacks on a plate. That’s right, just dump them out!

Step 4: Heat the second box the same way you did the first.

Step 5: When the second set of 4 minutes is over, dump the first batch back into the basket (right on top of the batch that just finished cooking) and heat everything for another minute!

Step 6: When the cooking is done, pour the entire contents of the basket on a plate, and then arrange for eating–I do this by separating the snacks onto two plates!

Note: If you are only heating up one box of snacks: First heat for 5 minutes, and then shake the basket and heat for 4 more minutes. Serve.

Keep in mind that you still might have an exploding snack or two, but that’s all it will be, and you probably won’t even notice!

Oh yeah! Another awesome thing about the Air Fryer? That baby is covered in a non-stick surface that makes clean up almost fun! Notice, I did say ALMOST–I mean, who really likes cleaning up anyway? (Yo, if that describes you, don’t tell us!! LOL!!)

Do you own an Air Fryer? Have you tried these snacks before? If you try this “Perfect” cooking method, leave a comment and let me know how it goes!

Happy Snacking!
