Tips and Tricks
These are just a few simple tips on how to perfect your air fryer avocado fries. You’re going to be hooked!
- Picking the Perfect Avocado: Ripe avocados can be tricky to find. Look for avocados that are dark in color without blemishes. Gently squeeze the top of the avocado- if it gives slightly, it’s ready to eat. Avoid anything too mushy or too firm.
- Space Between Fries: Your air fryer avocado fries need plenty of air flow in order to cook properly. Don’t overcrowd your basket and make sure there is plenty of space between each fry.
- Make Them Spicy: If you want your avocado fries to have more kick, try adding a little Cajun spice to your panko mix!
Anything this crispy and delicious needs an equally delicious dip to go with it. Whether you like your dips cool and creamy or with some kick, I’ve got you covered! These are all beyond easy to whip up, and only take a few ingredients that you’ve probably already got in your fridge.
Storing / Reheating Leftover Avocado Fries
Since avocados oxidize so quickly, your fries will only stay good for a day or two. Store in an airtight container in the fridge. To keep them nice and crispy, I recommend reheating them in the air fryer for a few minutes until warmed through!
