Ideas for leftover carnitas*?

I made a big pot of carnitas* and am looking for novel ideas on what to do with the left-overs. We've had our fill of tacos, burritos and rice-and-beans. Anything non-Mexican carnitas meat would work with?

*The star is because, no, they are not real carnitas, confit in lard. It's a huge bone-in pork shoulder, hacked into about 6 pieces, coated with salt, pepper, and oregano, and slow cooked with a couple of onions until insanely tender. I usually shred the meat then broil it before serving to create crispy bits (but the leftovers aren't broiled yet).
