This week, chef Rene Andrade of Ghost Ranch shares his barbacoa burrito recipe that you can make in a crockpot, which will come in handy once the temperature rises and you don’t want to use the oven.

Mardi Gras is coming up on Tuesday, Feb. 25 and if you plan on celebrating at home, we’ve rustled up an easy shrimp and grits recipe courtesy of Voodoo Daddy’s Steam Kitchen in Tempe.
