This recipe is based of using the COSORI Air Fryer (affiliate link, we get a fee if you buy!).

You'll often find these bags off miniature peppers at your local grocery store. They're in effect much sweeter and less vegetal versions of bell peppers - with very little to no heat. They cook up great in the air fryer.

Prep Time 7 minutes
Cook Time 12 minutes
Additional Time 5 minutes
Total Time 24 minutes


  • One bag of sweet mini peppers


  1. Preheat air fryer to 400F
  2. Wash and pat dry peppers
  3. Add peppers to air fryer
  4. Cook for 12 minutes for minimal char
  5. Turn peppers half way through cooking
  6. Cook for an additional 4- minutes further for even more char if preferred


The hot circulating air of the fryer works wonders with sweet mini peppers. The high heat chars and crisps the peppers and really underscores the sweetness. No oil or salt needed, simply add the cleaned peppers direct to the air fryer and sit back.

What do you do with sweet mini peppers in the air fryer?

Once you’ve developed a lovely smoky and sweet char on these peppers I love to slice them up as follows:

From there they work great in a number of dishes, but my favorite are Mexican dishes like:

  • Tacos
  • Enchiladas
  • Burritos
  • Tortas
  • Chimichanga

The peppers work fabulously in all of those and and more – they add a different dimension of flavor that really elevates the overall dish.

Please ensure your food is always thoroughly cooked. We recommend investing in a good kitchen thermometer. Our favorite is this affordable unit from Habor We get a small referral fee for any purchases made through Amazon. Find other accessories here.
