I Ate All of the Air Fryer Buffalo Cauliflower by Myself!

Yes, you read that right. I ate them all. By myself.

I have no regrets! I would do it again. Well, I did do it again lol.

I have made these at least 3 times in the last week, but I shared 2 out of the 3 times.

When Angela and my nephews approve it, then you know it’s one of those recipes that’s a keeper! Trust me on this. My middle nephew just does NOT care for broccoli or cauliflower, but this helped change his mind on the cauliflower aspect. I might have to try this out with broccoli to see how it will turn out. I’m pretty sure that it might turn out a little bit more on the crisp side as cauliflower is more dense and has a higher water content to it.

Air Fryer Buffalo Cauliflower: One Bit and You’re Hooked

All you need is just one more it of this air fryer buffalo cauliflower, and you’re going to be hooked for life. To me, it was super addictive in flavor.

It’s not an overwhelming pungent taste of hot sauce. It was just enough to give it a small bite that I was craving for.

To make my buffalo cauliflower, I used Cholula. Cholula is a brand of hot sauce that you should be able to get at almost any major grocery store. It will be located with the other hot sauces. You can use whatever type of hot sauce that you want, but I just happen to be a huge fan of Cholula. I can seriously eat this stuff on almost everything. Almost.

You'll love making these Buffalo Cauliflower Bites in your new Vortex Plus or other Air fryers!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 8 minutes
Total Time 13 minutes


  • 1 bag Frozen Cauliflower - thawed (12oz-16oz) or 1 head of Fresh Cauliflower broken down into florets. (I chose frozen to make life easier)
  • 3 tablespoons Cholula Hot Sauce
  • sea salt and pepper to season (I used 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper)
  • 1 large ziploc freezer bag (to mix ingredients together)


  1. Place your cauliflower into your air fryer. I have NuWave that comes with a basket. I placed mine in it. 
  2. Place in preheated 400 degrees for 5 minutes. Remove and Allow to cool for 1 minute, after 5 minutes have passed. 
  3. Place your cauliflower in a ziplock freezer bag with salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Mix around in the bag until cauliflower is evenly coated. 
  4. Empty contents of your bag into the air fryer basket, place on 400 degrees and cook for 3 minutes. 

For Vortex Plus Air Fryer

  1. Press Air Fry. Select temp to 400 degrees. Select time for 10 minutes.
  2. Place cauliflower onto tray, and place in Vortex Plus once "Add Food" is displayed on machine.
  3. Cook for 5 minutes. Remove from Vortex and allow to cool for a minute. Place your cauliflower in a ziplock freezer bag with salt, pepper, and hot sauce. Mix around in the bag until cauliflower is evenly coated. This should take you about 2 minutes or less.
  4. Place cauliflower back onto tray and place back into Vortex Plus. Allow to finish cooking for remaining time.


  • NOTE: Please make sure your cauliflower is thawed. Any excess frozen ice on it can create extra moisture that you don't want. I ran my under water in a strainer to get rid of the ice, and then I let it drain to remove excess water.
