Make easy buffalo chicken in the slow cooker, then make cheesy flautas from the sauce and meat!
I made buffalo chicken in the slow cooker. Wrapped it up that buffalo chicken in tortillas with mozzarella cheese, rolled them up, basted them with butter, and baked them. These ooey-gooey crisp and delicious flautas are really good dipped in ranch or blue cheese dressing. If you are a fan of buffalo sauce, you will love these!
