  • Air Fryer
  • Breaded Jalapeno Poppers
  • Cooking spray
  • Foil Sheet
  • Tongs


  1. Preheat the air fryer for 4 minutes at 375° F.
  2. Meanwhile, line the air fryer basket with a foil sheet. 
  3. Coat the breaded jalapeno poppers with cooking spray and lay them in the lined basket in a single layer leaving a little gap between each popper.
  4. Air fry for 12 minutes until crisp & golden brownish. At 5-6 minutes intervals, flip the poppers using tongs.
  5. Finally, remove the air-fried jalapeno poppers into a serving dish and enjoy with a creamy dip.


  • The bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers also require 12 minutes of cook time at 375° F in a preheated air fryer same as the breaded ones.
  • Avoid overcrowding the basket with jalapeno poppers. Air fry in batches to get an evenly crisp result.
