Air fryers have become incredibly popular in recent years for their ability to replicate the crispiness and flavor of deep-fried foods using minimal oil.

In this blog post, we will guide you through the process of reheating churros in an air fryer so that you can enjoy these delectable treats without compromising on taste and texture.

Gather Your Ingredients

Before diving into the reheating process, ensure you have all the necessary ingredients ready:

  • Frozen or refrigerated churros
  • Cooking spray or a little amount of oil (optional)

Preheating Your Air Fryer

To achieve optimal results when reheating your churros, it is essential to preheat your air fryer. Follow these steps:

  1. Plug in your air fryer and set the desired temperature between 350°F (175°C) and 400°F (200°C).
  2. Allow the air fryer to preheat for approximately three minutes.

The Reheating Process

Now it’s time to reheat those mouthwatering churros! Follow these simple steps:


  1. If Using Frozen Churros:
  2. i. Place frozen churros directly into your preheated air fryer.
    ii. Cook for 4-6 minutes, depending on the desired level of crispiness.
    iii. Shake the air fryer basket or use tongs to turn the churros halfway through cooking time to ensure even reheating.

  3. If Using Refrigerated Churros:
  4. i. Preheat your air fryer as mentioned earlier.
    ii. Lightly spray some cooking oil on a baking sheet or brush a small amount of oil onto each side of the refrigerated churros (optional).

    iii. Place the churros in a single layer inside your preheated air fryer basket or tray.
    iv. Cook for approximately 2-3 minutes, flipping them once in between if desired.

Serve and Enjoy!

Once your churros are heated through and have achieved that perfect golden brown color, remove them from the air fryer using tongs or a spatula. Allow them to cool for a minute before serving.

For an extra touch of deliciousness, consider serving your reheated churros with warm chocolate sauce, dulce de leche, or cinnamon sugar.
