How to make
Taco seasoned oyster crackers are really easy to make in the air fryer.
Here’s what you’ll need to do.
First, place the oyster crackers in a large bowl.
Pour the olive oil over the crackers and gently toss them to coat the crackers.
In a separate small bowl, mix the taco seasoning, garlic powder, cumin, chili powder, parsley, black pepper, and brown sugar until they are well blended.
When they are blended, sprinkle the taco seasoning mixture over the crackers and gently toss to coat them.
Finally, place the coated crackers in the basket of the air fryer.

Make sure the crackers form a single layer.
About half way through, toss the crackers to ensure even cooking.
Before serving, allow them to cool on parchment paper.
Serve, and Enjoy!
Tips and tricks.
- Make sure all the crackers are coated in olive oil and the seasoning are all mixed well before tossing them together. This helps ensure that every piece is evenly coated.
- When they are cooking, make sure you gently toss the crackers about half way through to ensure even cooking.
- If needed, cook the crackers in batches so that they are not piled on top of each other.
