  • air fryer


  • 4 cups cooked salsa chicken
  • 8 flour tortillas
  • 4 cups shredded cheese cheddar, colby jack or Mexican Blend
  • olive oil spray


  • Add some salsa chicken to center of tortilla
  • Sprinkle cheese over chicken
  • Roll tortilla up and over filling into burrito shape
  • Repeat process until all burritos are formed, and spritz with olive oil spray
  • Preheat air fryer to 390 degrees. Place chimichangas into air fryer. If using the Instant Pot Vortex or similar air fryer, place burritos on 2 separate trays. If using smaller air fryer, you may have to cook these in batches
  • Cook for 2 minutes, rotating trays halfway through cooking time -- or 3 minutes for extra crispy chimichangas or if using smaller air fryer
  • Serve with sour cream, guacamole, tomatoes, extra cheese and salsa or your favorite toppings


Recipe was made in the both Instant Pot Vortex Air Fryer and the Ninja Air Fryer
You can use leftover rotisserie chicken or shredded cooked chicken seasoned with taco seasoning and salsa in place of salsa chicken 
If you don't have an air fryer, bake the chimichangas at 400 degrees until brown
