  • ¼ Cup Cotija Cheese grated Parmesan can be subbed

  • Preheat the air fryer to 400°F
  • Slice the potatoes into wedges lengthwise, you should get 8 wedges per potato. To do this start by cutting the potato in half lengthwise, then cut each half in half, lengthwise, and lastly each quarter in half lengthwise. Place the potato wedges in a bowl and toss them with the olive oil.
