Crunchy, salty, addictive corn nuts made easy and healthier thanks to the air fryer. This is my basic recipe, but feel free to add additional flavors such as Cajun seasoning, ranch powder, BBQ seasoning, chili powder, taco seasoning, etc.

Loved this recipe! You can also rehydrate them by putting them in 4 cups of water bring to a boil for 2 mins and then shut off the heat and let sit for 1 hour. Drain dry off and then season with oil and the spices you desire. Read More

Just discovered this snack and the family loves it. However I don't have a working oven and the fat needed for stovetop frying is over the top. This recipe has perfect cook times which is all that I needed! Thank you! Read More

I used a Ninja airfryer and found that the temp was way too hot even for 20 minutes. I used the roast setting at 350 degrees for 25 minutes shaking the basket every 5 minutes or so. Super crunchy and delicious. Read More
