Air-Fryer Avocado Chicken Empanadas are air-fried dough pockets stuffed with chicken, cheese and avocado salsa. You'll love them. They're delicious. And, when you see how easy it is to make these empanadas, you’ll be even more excited! The avocado salsa brings the fresh flavor of avocado with no prep- so they're easy to make. You can customize them to fit what you have at home. Don't have empanada dough? Use pizza dough. Don't have an air fryer? Bake the empanadas in your oven. Final fact?

Heat the air fryer to 375°F. Stir the chicken, salsa, green onions, red pepper, cheese, chili powder and cumin in a bowl.
Place 3 tablespoons chicken mixture in the center of each dough round. Fold the dough in half over the filling and crimp the edges with a fork to seal. Spray both sides of the filled empanadas with vegetable cooking spray.
Place the chicken empanadas into the air fryer basket (for small fryers, cook in 2 batches). Air fry for 12 minutes or until golden brown, turning empanadas over halfway through cooking time. Serve with additional salsa for dipping.
