Elevate your snack game with these Air Fryer Cajun corn nibblers that deliver a bold and flavorful punch. Packed with a fiery blend of spices and a satisfying bite, these nibblers are perfect for satisfying your cravings and impressing your taste buds.
You could also try this recipe with any number of other seasonings you like instead of the cajun spice mix. Ranch dressing seasoning would be great with the melted butter (but I’d leave out the garlic and onion powder for that one).
Ingredients For Cajun Corn Nibblers:
- mini ears of sweet corn
- cajun seasoning
- onion powder
- garlic powder
You could also use a bit of salt and black pepper to season the corn but I don’t think you need it with the Cajun seasoning. The Cajun spice seasoning gives it enough flavor in my opinion.

Do I Have To Make These In The Air Fryer?
You don’t have to, but this is how I tested this recipe. You can also use an oven.
Using an air fryer to prepare Cajun corn nibblers is a game-changer. The air fryer works its magic by circulating hot air around the food, resulting in a crispy exterior and a tender interior!
If you want to try making these in the oven, I would suggest maybe 350F for 30 minutes instead of the 15 minutes for the air fryer.
How To Make Cajun Corn Nibblers:
Cut corn into 2ish-inch pieces.
If you’re using the frozen corn nibblers, there is no need to boil the corn beforehand.
Combine melted butter and seasonings.
Brush melted butter and seasoning mixture over corn nibblers. Or roll the corn nibblers around in the melted butter.
Air Fry at 400F for 13-15 minutes.
These would even be great with a little but of cotija cheese sprinkles over them.
Do I Have To Use The Short Corn Nibblers For This Recipe?
No, you can use regular-sized corn on the cob. I just like the nibblers because they’re already small. Just use a regular-sized ear of corn and cup to the desired size.
Can I Use Vegan Butter?
You sure can! I’ve
