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!
Happy Birthday Aubrey! I hope it’s a great one!
