  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded, cut in ½-inch strips
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded, cut in ½-inch strips
  • 1 medium yellow onion, trimmed, peeled, cut in thin slices
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt, as desired
  • Ground black pepper, as desired
  • 3 ears of corn, shucked, broken in half
  • 10 taco tortillas (corn or flour, 5-inch diameter), divided
  • 8oz ground beef
  • 2 packets (1 ounce each) taco seasoning
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican cheese blend
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 pound frozen raw jumbo shrimp, peeled, deveined, tails off
  • ¼ cup Cotija cheese
  • ¼ cup fresh cilantro, chopped
  • Step 1

    Insert a crisper plate in the bottom of each basket.

  • Step 2

    In a medium bowl, toss the peppers and onions with 1 tablespoon oil, salt, and pepper. Add to the bottom of the other basket and place the basket in Zone 1.

  • Step 3

    Wrap each corn half in aluminum foil and place in the bottom of the other basket. Place one Stacked Meal Rack in the basket over the corn.

  • Step 4

    In a medium bowl, combine ground beef, 1 packet of taco seasoning, and shredded Mexican cheese blend. Divide amongst 6 tortillas in portions the length of the tortillas, then roll the tortillas up and around the meat filling to create the taquitos. Secure each with a wooden toothpick, then spray the taquitos with nonstick cooking spray. Place the taquitos on the rack over the corn. Insert basket in Zone 2.

  • Step 5

    Select DOUBLE STACK PRO (unit will default to AIR FRY function and 450°F temperature), then set Zone 1 time to 25 minutes. Select MATCH COOK, and then press START/PAUSE to begin
    cooking (unit will automatically set Zone 2 to match Zone 1).

  • Step 6

    While food is cooking, in a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, sour cream, and chili powder, then set aside.

  • Step 7

    In a medium bowl, toss the frozen shrimp with the remaining 1 tablespoon oil and the other packet of taco seasoning.

  • Step 8

    When the time reaches 15 minutes, remove Zone 1 basket, place the other Stacked Meal Rack in basket over the peppers and onions, and place shrimp on the rack. Reinsert basket to continue cooking.

  • Step 9

    When cooking is complete, use an instant-read thermometer to ensure internal temperature of taquitos reaches at least 165°F. Remove shrimp and taquitos from the racks and set aside. To remove racks, use tongs to grab the center of them, or wear oven mitts and lift the racks out using the handles on their sides. Remove foil from corn, brush corn with mayonnaise mixture, then evenly sprinkle with Cotija cheese and cilantro. Fill the remaining 4 tortillas with shrimp, peppers, and onions. Serve the fajitas and taquitos with the Cotija corn.
