Get your Super Bowl snack on with tortilla chips made in the air fryer, served with a cheesy pinto bean and bacon dip.
- avocado oil cooking spray
- ½ pound bacon
- ½ cup chopped onion
- 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chiles (such as Ortega®)
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 (29 ounce) can pinto beans, undrained
- ½ cup chicken broth
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 2 tablespoons cream cheese
- salt and ground black pepper to taste
- 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
- 1 cup shredded pepper Jack cheese
- 12 (6 inch) corn tortillas
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly spray an 8x8-inch baking dish.
- Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels. Crumble once cooled.
- Saute onion in the same skillet until translucent, 4 to 5 minutes. Add green chiles and garlic and cook for 2 more minutes. Add pinto beans; bring to a boil. Stir in chicken broth and chili powder. Reduce heat to low and mash beans. Let simmer until slightly thickened, 5 to 6 minutes. Add cream cheese and stir until melted. Simmer until slightly thickened, 5 to 6 minutes. Add bacon and stir until well combined. Season with salt and pepper.
- Layer 1/2 of the bean mixture, 1/2 cup pepper Jack, and 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese into the prepared baking dish. Repeat layers.
- Bake, covered, in the preheated oven for 15 minutes. Uncover and continue baking until cheese is melted or lightly browned, 5 to 7 minutes more.
- Meanwhile, preheat an air fryer to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) according to manufacturer's instructions.
- Cut each tortilla into fourths. Spray both sides of each tortilla with avocado oil. Place in air fryer basket in a single layer. Air fry for 4 to 6 minutes. Flip and continue cooking until crisp, 2 to 3 minutes more. Check your basket constantly because they can burn quickly. Sprinkle with salt and serve with hot dip.
