  • 1. Grease a 7 1/2-inch barrel cake pan (see Note) with oil.
  • 2. In a large bowl, stir together the chicken, bell pepper, jalapeños, cream cheese, Mexican cheese blend, chili powder, garlic salt, and salt until thoroughly combined. Transfer the mixture to the prepared pan.
  • 3. Cut each bacon slice into three or four pieces. Arrange the bacon in a circle on top of the chicken mixture. Place the pan in the air-fryer basket. Set the air fryer to 400°F for 15 minutes, or until the cheese has melted and the chicken is cooked through.
  • 4. Sprinkle with the scallions and serve with vegetables and/or tortilla chips for dipping.
  • NOTE: This recipe was written to be made in an extra-deep 7 1/2-inch round pan called a barrel pan or cake barrel, which is sold as an accessory for air fryers with a capacity of 5.3 quarts or more. If your fryer is smaller than that, use a 6-inch round cake pan with 4-inch sides and increase the cooking time by 5 to 8 minutes.
