How to Make Frozen Burritos in an Air Fryer Better
My favorite thing when making a frozen burrito is to add some cheese to the top of it. Add the cheese about 3 minutes before it's done cooking for it to melt perfectly on top.
My husband and kids love adding their favorite hot sauces to the tops of frozen burritos once they are cooked.
You can also make frozen burritos taste better by dipping them into a sauce.

If you end up with leftovers, you can store them in your fridge for 2-3 days.
To reheat the leftovers, cook them at 320F for about 4-5 minutes.
Make sure your frozen burritos aren't touching each other when cooking.
Don't skip preheating your air fryer before cooking your burritos.
Make sure to flip your burritos about half way through to get even cooking.
