If you love jalapeño poppers, then you'll love these air fryer jalapeño poppers! Making them in the air fryer means that your poppers are ready even faster, and who doesn't love efficiency like that in the kitchen. These air fryer jalapeño poppers are ready start to finish in about 25 minutes, making them perfect for feeding a crowd too!
Making these air fryer jalapeño poppers is not only easy, but they only require a small handful of ingredients too.
This recipe is SO easy to make, which is one of the reasons I love making jalapeño poppers in the air fryer, especially if serving a small crowd.
The first thing you'll want to do is slice the jalapeños in half lengthwise. Remove the seeds and ribs, you can use gloves if you want (if not, just be careful not to touch your face/eyes afterwards before washing thoroughly!). You will burn your eyes and it will hurt immensely (been there).
Next, stir together the filling ingredients.
Divide the filling amongst the jalapeños and wrap with prosciutto.
Place the jalapeño poppers in your preheated air fryer and bake at 375℉ for 8 to 10 minutes. Check on them at 8 minutes to be sure. You want them to be slightly browned and for the prosciutto to be crispy.
That's it! Enjoy while they're hot and fresh from the air fryer.
Before getting an air fryer, I would bake jalapeño poppers in the oven all the time. They take longer, but they still taste the same.
Prepare the jalapeño poppers the same way and then place on a lined baking sheet. Bake at 400℉ for about 18 to 20 minutes.
Absolutely! Prep them in advance to save yourself some time.
If you are serving a crowd, you could always make these prosciutto wrapped jalapeño poppers in the oven. This would allow you to make a lot more (unless you have a very large air fryer).

The air fryer I use and really enjoy and recommend is this T-Fal Easy Air Fryer. I like the size of it for cooking for 1 to 2 people. Plus, I think it's fairly affordable as well and doesn't take up too much room.
Because all air fryers differ in terms of cook time, it's important to note that for any air fryer recipe, there may be slight variations. They can take some trial and error to navigate and nail down the temperatures and timing.

Jalapeño poppers are the ultimate appetizer for serving a crowd (or you know, just you!). And I've been making these air fryer jalapeño poppers with prosciutto for years now, and it's better than bacon, yup I said it.
No ricotta: use cream cheese instead.
No prosciutto: use bacon, or omit and sprinkle panko on top.
This recipe makes 12 poppers, three poppers per serving.
