I love my air fryer, as you can multitask while you’re air frying. These individual Mexico inspired flavored mini frittatas are fast, easy, and loaded with flavor! Serve with fresh fruit salad and toasted English muffins. — Sharyn LaPointe Hill, Las Cruces, New Mexico

  • 1/2 pound Yukon Gold potatoes, cubed (about 2 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 4 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 tablespoons half-and-half cream
  • 1/4 cup spreadable spicy jalapeno cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes, quartered
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon minced seeded jalapeno pepper
  • Thinly sliced jalapeno pepper


  1. Preheat air fryer at 400°. Place potatoes, olive oil and garlic salt in a large bowl; toss to coat. Place potatoes in air fryer. Cook until tender and lightly browned, 14-16 minutes, shaking basket occasionally.
  2. In another bowl, whisk eggs, cream, cream cheese and cumin until blended. Stir in shredded cheese, tomatoes, cilantro and chopped jalapeno. Divide potatoes among 4 greased 8-oz. ramekins. Pour egg mixture over top; cover with foil. Place ramekins in air fryer. Cook for 12 minutes. Remove foil and cook until set and a knife inserted near the center comes out clean, about 3 minutes longer. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Top with jalapeno slices.
Peppers (Hot)
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
