As summer wraps up and we put away our barbecues, we start pulling out our handy crock pots to make a flavorful supper for after work. I would even argue that crock pots are better than barbecues because supper is hot and ready for you as soon as you get home. With the crockpot, you can make a variety of foods, but my favorite are the hearty meals that make fantastic leftovers the next day. Check out how you can transform your supper game with these recipes.

1. Shepard’s Pie

Shepards pie can be made in a variety of ways, but this quick, tried and true method is always the winner.

2. Chicken Burrito Bowls

When Taco Tuesday turns into a chilly Tuesday, a hot burrito bowl is the perfect alternative to a taco.
