  • 1 lb chorizo sausage raw, in casing


  • Preheat the air fryer to 380 degrees F for 5 minutes.
  • Slice the chorizo sausages into 2 inch thick slices.
  • Transfer the sliced sausages to the air fryer and cook at 380 degrees F for 10-12 minutes or until fully cooked, flipping halfway. You'll know the chorizo is done when the internal temperature reaches a minimum of 160 degrees F.
  • Serve with scrambled eggs and some sliced avocado on the side and enjoy.


  • Make sure to buy raw chorizo in the casing that must be cooked before consuming. Some brands sell the chorizo already cooked which will not work for this recipe.
  • Slicing the sausages results in a more even cooking but they can be air fried whole if you prefer. However, it may take longer for them to be done.
  • Monitor the chorizo after the first 7 minutes of cooking because some air fryer brands will cook faster than others.
  • Always read your air fryer manual before using it.
