Let's face it. Summer is a time for fun, and some parents don't want to stay in a hot house all day and cook, while some just don't have the time or energy. This is the kind of meal that you just pop in the slow cooker and do whatever you and your family have to do for 6-8 hours. Then just put it in some lettuce wraps and eat! It's easy, fuss-free, and I think it tastes great.

Another way to use up that leftover meat is to make a soup out of it. But why be boring about it? Add some spicy Mexican chorizo to it and you've got a really great soup! It's really easy and quick to make and warms you up nicely! Note that you can use meat, shrimp or both along with the chorizo in this soup. (PS: You can also make this in your slow cooker. See the "Alternate Method" below for the directions!)
