Meet your new favorite snack: Air Fried Cajun Tachos! This quick recipe uses tater tots as a crispy potato base and then piles classic Mexican ingredients on top of added flavor. We give our tachos a Cajun twist by tossing the tots in Cajun seasoning but there are endless ways to customize this recipe!


  • 1 - 2 tbsp. Louisiana Fish Fry Products Cajun Seasoning, to taste
  • ¼ cup Louisiana Fish Fry Products Fish Taco Sauce
  • ½ bag Plain Frozen Tater Tots
  • ½ cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • Cilantro and/or scallions, for garnish
  • Pickled Jalapenos, for garnish


    Preheat air fryer to 400°F. Place tater tots in a single layer in the fryer basket and air-fry tots for 10 minutes until nearly done. In a bowl, toss hot tater tots with Cajun seasoning (to taste) until coated. Return tots to fryer tray and sprinkle with shredded cheddar, then continue to fry for about 2-3 more minutes or until cheese is just melted. Scoop cheesy tots onto a plate, drizzle with fish taco sauce, and top with cilantro, scallions, and pickled jalapenos.

    Plus it up: add chopped crispy bacon, cajun-seasoned chicken, or make it extra spicy with a drizzle of Louisiana Fish Fry Hot Sauce.


    Reheat Fried Foods

    To reheat your fried foods, let them come up to room temperature and then bake briefly in a 400-degree oven. Use a wire rack atop a baking sheet to keep too much steam from making things soggy.
