MADE IT. ATE IT. LOVED IT. >> Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Taquitos

We’ve teamed up with Scarlett Bendixen of “Made it. Ate it. Loved it.” to bring you an awesome recipe that is easy to whip up at home. Scarlett is a busy mother of 4, cookbook author, party planner, and long time member of the Tortilla Fam. She focuses on family, creating recipes that are quick, delicious, and adaptable for everybody - age notwithstanding. Scarlett cites the slow cooker as her “saving grace” and the answer to a hectic schedule. It lets her prioritize the evening meal and get everything else finished too! 

We’re big slow cooker fans too. With a little planning, a slow cooker can dramatically cut the time you have to spend in the kitchen, while still imparting that flavor that only time and patience can give a meal. So, stick your ingredients in, walk away, and let the magic happen!
