- Final Air Fry: Place the topped cauliflower back into the air fryer and cook for another 5 minutes at 400°F (200°C) until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
- Serve: Once cooked to perfection, remove the cauliflower nachos from the air fryer and drizzle with salsa. Feel free to add any additional toppings of your choice.
