  • 4 hot dogs
  • 1 cup (240 ml) chili
  • 1/2 cup (57 g) shredded cheddar cheese
  • oil for spraying



  • Add a light spray or brush of oil on the hot dogs. Place the hot dogs in the air fryer basket.
  • Air Fry at 380°F for 8-10 minutes depending on your preferred texture and size of hot dogs. If you like your hot dogs extra crispy, air fry at 400°F for about 6-8 minutes. Flip the hot dogs half way through cooking.
  • Heat the chili while the hot dogs cook. Set aside.
  • Place hot dogs in buns then add chili and cheese on top. Cook in the air fryer for about one minute to warm and crisp the bread, cheese and chili.

If your air fryer is preheated or if you are cooking multiple batches, you may need to reduce timing by a few minutes (unless preheating is called for in the recipe).
