  • 1 large onion - chopped
  • Garlic Salt - to taste
  • Seasoned Salt - to taste

  • 1 can of Dark Red Kidney Beans - drained and rinsed
  • TO TOP:
  • Shredded Colby Jack Cheese
  • Chopped Onion
  • Chives - chopped
  • Sour Cream


  1. Place the ground Sirloin in a large heavy bottom skillet, and cook until golden brown, and no pink is visible. 
  2. Crumble cooked Sirloin, and sprinkle with Garlic salt, seasoned salt, and seasoned pepper, and stir to combine.  Add the chopped Onion, and stir well.
  3. Add the can of Tomato sauce, Ketchup, water, chili powder, ground cumin, Brown sugar, minced garlic, and beans. 
  4. Bring to a boil, and cook for 1 minute.  Turn heat to low, and simmer while preparing the Potatoes.
  5. Wash the potatoes, dry with paper towels and cut into cubes. 
  6. Place Foil in the Air Fryer - around the basket shelf, and place cubed potatoes on the foil. 
  7. Ladle the Chili over the potatoes completely covering them. 
  8. Cook for 12 minutes on 375. 
  9. Remove basket, and cover with cheese, then place basket back in the Air Fryer, and cook an additional 2 minutes.
  10. To serve, top with chopped onions, chopped chives, and sour cream.  Enjoy!


Because not all Air Fryers cook the same, pierce potatoes with a knife after cooking to make sure they're cooked tender, before serving. If potatoes are not cooked done, place basket back in Air Fryer, and cook for an additional 2 minutes.  You can also serve with your favorite toppings, crackers, bread, or Frito's.
