Coco inspired Slow Cooker Baked Flautas
This month’s theme for Food ‘N Flix is Disney Pixar’s Coco and Culinary Adventures with Camilla is our host. The film is about a boy who wants to be a musician but due to a family incident in the past, the entire family is forbidden to play music. They make shoes, but Miguel is not interested in that career path. Miguel ends up taking a trip to the afterlife and finding his ancestors, and ultimately getting to follow his dream of music. This movie is full of color and music and has a few scenes full of wonderful looking food. The one that stands out is tamales, but in that same scene there is a big plate of flautas. I love flautas so was inspired to make Slow Cooker Baked Flautas.
This is an easy meal to make. You just put the ingredients in the slow cooker and set it to cook for 4 hours. Then you shred the chicken, let it cook a little longer, and then put together the flautas. The final step is to bake the flautas for 10 minutes and then they are ready for serving.
Pin for later!
