If Lenten recipes are what you are looking for, this will definitely become one of your favorites. Tuna tacos are a very inexpensive and nutritious meal for Authentic Mexcian Cuaresma recipes or recetas! I prefer to buy the tuna in water to save the fat from the oil.

TACOS DORADOS IN AIRFRYER

The air fryer has been a good investment, I use it a lot, the truth is that I feel that it is like having a small oven and it helps me a lot so that I do not have to turn on the entire oven and achieve the feeling of fried food without having to use a large amount of fat. I always try to cook the healthiest for me and my family so fried foods are not frequent in our home.

  1. Heat the tortillas on the griddle
  2. Spray a little vegetable oil spray on the tortillas or if you don’t have it, place a little oil on a plate and lightly coat the tortillas with the oil.
  3. Fill the tortillas and fold to form the taco shape
  4. Place in the air fryer making sure to leave space between each block. The secret of cooking in an air fryer is that hot air can circulate between the food to achieve the effect that it is fried.
  5. Cook at 360f or 180c for 6 minutes on each side, check if they need more and, turn them on their side. Mine were ready in less than 15 minutes but this may vary depending on the brand of your air fryer.
  6. Serve with a rich cabbage salad and a good sauce. Here is my delicious cabbage salad that goes perfectly with this recipe.

HOW TO MAKE CRISPY TUNA TACOS FRIED IN OIL

If what you want is some crispy tuna tacos bathed in oil, the procedure is very simple. This is the traditional Mexican recipe for making Tacos Dorados.

To prepare this recipe you will need some tongs that you can put in the boiling oil and have an extended plate with a couple of table napkins on it to place the tacos there once they come out of the oil and let them absorb a little of the excess fat.

  1. Start by heating the tortillas a little so that you can fold them without breaking.
  2. Fill the tortillas with the tuna mixture we made.
  3. Close the tortilla to shape it into a taco.
  4. In a frying pan, place a layer of oil of about one centimeter and put it to heat.
  5. Once the oil is boiling, put it on low heat to prevent it from burning.
  6. Carefully put the tacos in the oil and watch what they fry.
  7. With a spoon, bathe the taco on the top with the oil.
  8. The tacos will be ready when you see that the tortilla has changed color.
