  • 20 oz bag of tater tots organic preferred
  • 1 tsp olive oil


  • Using a paper towel and 1 tsp of olive oil, wipe the air fryer basket with oil.
  • Fill the air fryer basket with the frozen tater tots.
  • Set the temperature to 400 F for 15 minutes.
  • Toss the tater tots at the half way point, about 7 ½ minutes through cooking time.
  • Transfer to a serving bowl and serve with ketchup of your favorite dipping sauce.



  1. Use quality tater tots.
  2. Look for tots with a few ingredients that you can read to avoid processed ingredients. I recommend the Alexia brand.
  3. Use a small amount of oil, I recommend olive or avocado oil. Moderately coat the air fryer basket with oil.
  4. Some air fryers need to be preheated. Preheat your air fryer if needed.
  5. Be sure to toss the tots at the halfway point, 7.5 minutes to guarantee an even fry.
