Air Fryer Avocado Fries + Sriracha Ketchup

Happy Fri-YAY, y’all! This might be the best. Fri-YAY. E-V-E-R…

On July 31st, we finally convinced you to buy an air fryer when we posted a sneak peak of these Air Fryer Avocado Fries + Sriracha Ketchup to celebrate the most millennial holiday of all time: National Avocado Day. Hey, we’ll take it.

These fries are the most satisfying treat, as you get a crunchy crisp on the outside with a delicious gooey avo center, all in the same bite. You could eat these fries plain, or with a menagerie of dipping sauces. However, we threw it back to our trusty friend, Sriracha ketchup, and the combo of flavors was quite literally *fire*. Feel free to adjust the Sriracha + ketchup ratios to your liking—Taylor is a spice warrior, but we aimed to please.

This recipe is so simple and can be tweaked in a variety ways. If you want to go gluten-free, try replacing the breadcrumbs with almond flour. Try different types and amounts of cheese—or no cheese at all for dairy-free! PSA: Trader Joe’s Pecorino Romano block cheese is amazing and somehow not very expensive compared to the rest of the cheese world. We love grating/shredding/etc. our own cheese when incorporating in a recipe, but of course that is a personal preference and sometimes convenience might win! With this recipe, the avocado fry is your oyster. Enjoy!
