  • 1 lb petite potatoes, diced
  • 1 ½ T olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder salt and pepper
  • ½ teaspoon cracked pepper
  • ½ teaspoon sea salt
  • 3 T butter
  • c Frank’s red hot


  • Prep the potatoes. Chop into bite sized pieces. Toss with olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic powder. Spritz the basket of air fryer with spray oil.
  • Place all of the potatoes in the air fryer basket and spread evenly. If some are overlapping that is okay. Set the air fryer to 400°F (preheat if needed) and heat for 9 minutes.
  • After about 9 minutes, give the potatoes a good shake or toss them with a spatula to move them around. Cook for another 7 minutes or until cooked to desired crispiness/brown color.
  • While the potatoes cook, melt the butter and whisk it well with the hot sauce. When potatoes are cooked, transfer them to a medium bowl and toss with buffalo sauce. Cool for a few minutes and then serve!


  • For a more mild sauce, cut the amount of hot sauce down in these air fryer baby potatoes. The butter balances the level of spiciness so just reduce the amount of hot sauce!
  • You can eat these without any sauce, or simply use the buffalo sauce as a dip. The sauce tends to lessen the crispiness of the potatoes slightly, so serving it on the side will help keep them extra crisp.
  • I have a 5 quart air fryer and the potatoes fit nicely in the basket for this recipe. There is very little overlapping. If your air fryer is only a 2 quart, you could cook in batches.
