Jump to Recipe

I first tried this recipe for air fryer Mexican beets at one of my best friends home in Mexico. She fried them on the pan and I instantly thought… I can definitely make this in the air fryer! Get ready because this is about to become one of your favorite beets recipes. I did not eat many beets growing up. I remember having an amazing orange-beet salad for Christmas at my Abuelita’s home and once in a while my mom will serve them just cooked with salt and pepper on top.

My friend Dalia thought me how to make beets in a Mexican recipe by just adding Tajin (chili powder with a twist of lime flavor) on top after been fried. The Tajin chili powder brand has a special lime taste as well as the spiciness of the chili powder that comes around greatly with the sugary taste of beets. Definitely, this is the simplest more delicious recipe for betabeles, in English beets, that you will find.

HOW TO FRY OR ROAST BEETS IN THE AIR FRYER fOR CRUNCHY EDGES

  • The trick that has worked really well to me is bathing the beet in a little olive oil to get the perfect crunchiness and taste. The beets slices edges are a bit crunchy and they stay soft in the middle. The texture gives an excellent paladar adventure.
  • Set your air fryer at 360 f
  • Make sure that you live some space between each slice of beet. If you want the edges to be crunchy. Other way just place them all inside and every 2 minutes take out the tray and mix the beets a beet so they can all cook the same.
  • Cook the beet at the air fryer option or the roasted option on your air fryer for 4 minutes. Check and if you want them softer just add another 2 minutes.

BEETS ARE GREAT FOR PEOPLE WITH ANEMIA!

A benefit of the beets is their levels of iron. If you are suffering from low iron levels, beets will become your best ally. Beets are full of minerals and vitamins. Beetroots are known for being rich in iron. Iron is an essential component of red blood cells. Iron helps red blood cells transport oxygen around our bodies.

WHAT IS TAJIN?

Tajin is a brand of chili powder that is very popular in Mexico and has got many markets also in the US. In Mexico, Tajin is used to have on top fruit and some veggies such as jicama or cucumber. It has many uses. Some people even have it on beer! You need to give it a try. This Mexican chili powder is without a doubt my fave chili powder brand.

Tajin tastes a little spicy with a sour lime flavor.
