Then, I sprinkle the cheese onto my corn and cook for 5 more minutes.

Once done, I remove from the air fryer, top with chili powder and Stone House Seasoning, along with fresh cilantro. I serve with fresh lime wedges.

Now, you may know that traditional Mexican Street Corn also has a thick coating of mayonnaise on the corn. You can definite add that if you’d like, I just wanted to reduce the unnecessary calories and fat from this recipe. If you want to add, I would rub each ear of corn with 1/4 cup of mayonnaise before sprinkling with the cheese and cooking for the final five minutes. I promise you though, we don’t miss it!

Do you have an air fryer yet? Well, I could kick myself square in the pants. That’s a vision I’m sure, but here’s why.

Bart’s parents have been singing the praises of their air fryer for over 2 years. They love everything from biscuits to turkey breasts cooked in theirs and have been telling me for years that I needed to one. I was a little slow to really try my air fryer, but since I started using mine last fall, I’ve been hooked!

  1. I don’t have a air fryer now 🙁
    I love this recipe bc I love corn in any styles. I often boil corns with coconut water xD
    Is it possible if I fry the corn by my charcoal oven? I think it suits perfectly for a bbq party!

  2. This sounds so good! I have an Air Fryer and would LOVE more recipes for it and an Electric Pressure Cooker too!

    • This is so delicious, Sandy! I will be sharing many more Instant Pot, or pressure cooker, and Air Fryer recipes to come! They are such delicious time savers, aren’t they?!
      I have some Instant Pot recipes already here on the site you may want to check out if you haven’t seen them yet.
      I hope you enjoy this, Sandy! Thanks so much! xo

  3. Yes to air fryer recipes!!
    Yes to electric pressure cooker recipes!!
    Thanks

  4. Hi. I also have the same air fryer as you too.  I keep telling my friends “you have to get one of these” I love it. I really hope you can post more recipes!! I was only saying the other day about trying out baked potatoes in it and now you’ve reminded me. Will try some this week. I have to say I love the way it cooks crispy bacon. So worth it for that alone, yum!!  I’m experimenting all the time and I’d never be without it now. Thank you
