Stuffed peppers is a delicious and pretty simple meal for you to put onto your table! There are literally several ways you can prepare vegetarian stuffed bell peppers! You can prepare them in the Instant Pot, the oven or the air fryer!
Say what?! You can make stuffed bell peppers in the air fryer? Yes, you can! It is so easy! Today, we are teaching you how to cook stuffed peppers in the air fryer.
What is an Air Fryer?
It is a countertop appliance that will soon win your heart over! It is basically a smaller (the inside of it) type of convection oven that moves very hot air around.
The circulating air cooks your food quickly and evenly. I am guessing that you have probably seen an air fryer infomercial or two!
While smaller inside than a convection oven, the outside is often typically the size of a toaster oven or slightly smaller. Many people buy air fryers to use when camping in their RV or even for cooking “stinky” foods (think air fryer broccoli) outside.
What can you actually cook in an Air Fryer?
The options of what you can cook in this amazing appliance are truly endless. You know I’m crazy over this hot air frying recipe, but we’ve also cooked tofu, potatoes, french fries, Brussel sprouts and more! Anything that your taste buds want to try straight out of this gadget, give it a go!
While we don’t eat meat in our family, that doesn’t mean that you can’t cook up some fried chicken, chicken tenders, or anything else beer battered or deep fried to that perfect golden brown that you love and that you want with ease in the air fryer basket.
The great part about cooking with an air fryer? The cook time is a breeze. Like literally no time…at all.

This Is Why I Love My Air Fryer
There are so many reasons I love my air fryer, these are the main ones.
- This kitchen gadget is easy to use, straight out of the box.
- There are endless recipes you can make!
- Cook times are faster than your conventional oven and often food is equally heated.
- The cook time of a recipe is the actual time, unlike waiting for the pressure to rise on your instant pot or your oven to preheat!
- It uses a lot less oil!
- You can easily adapt recipes you already!
Let me just admit it here, that I love my air fryer. I think it has become fairly clear over the past year or two that I LOVE this kitchen gadget.
It was originally a Christmas gift that my mom bought my husband and I. She always likes to get us things for our kitchen. One of her friends suggested this oil-less fryer! So off to Kohls she headed with her coupon and got us one!
While I’d read all the rave reviews about how amazing the air fryer truly was, I seriously had NO idea how much I’d really love it! From the moment I unwrapped the gift, my mind was already racing with everything that I couldn’t wait to cook in it.
Trust me when I say that if you’ve been on the fence about purchasing an air fryer, encourage yourself to go ahead and make that buy. Once you use it just ONE time, you’ll be wondering what took you so long to make that decision!
Honestly, at this point in time we couldn’t be more thankful we were gifted an air fryer. We love our air fryers. Yes, we do have MORE than one!
These air fryers have come staples in our home. Many people ask how we store them. We actually do not have a lot of counter space, so we keep them in our laundry room. (which is slowly turning into a second pantry!)
