Most often I associate slow-cooker meals with the fall and winter — lots of heavy stews, soups, and rich meats — this trendy kitchen tool, however, can and should be used during the summer. So take your slow cooker out of the closet, dust it off, and start dreaming of delicious taco recipes, fruity desserts, and vegetable-laden gumbos.

I’ve rounded up 10 slow-cooker recipes that are suitable for the summer. Just put the stuff in, walk away, and head to the beach. Your slow cooker will do the rest.

The slow cooker is perfect for summer entertaining. I especially love the idea of making a vat of barbacoa beef for a DIY taco bar or a making some slow-cooker collard greens as a side for pulled pork sandwiches.
