Preparing the peppers for roasting in the air fryer is really quick and easy.

Start by washing the peppers and patting them dry. Then, chop each pepper up according to how you intend to use them. They can be chopped up into bite-sized chunks or halved or quartered.

oiling peppers

Spray or drizzle the peppers with oil, ensuring they are covered evenly. Sprinkle a little seasoning over them and transfer them to the air fryer basket.

Cook the peppers at 200°C for 10 to 12 minutes. Shake the peppers a few times to ensure they all get cooked evenly and to check they are not burning.

The peppers might be ready in a shorter or longer time, depending on what size the peppers have been chopped to.

The peppers are ready when they are softened and beginning to brown at the edges.
