This has to be the best way to enjoy watermelon—on ice with a little tequila! This margarita is the most recent creation by the Margarita Maven Blanca Aldaco at Aldaco’s Stone Oak. It is delightfully refreshing and perfect for any Fiesta! Blanca shows you how easy it is to make.
When I heard what this dish was called, I was intrigued. A watermelon glaze on chicken…what in the world is that? Wow, it’s delicious!

It’s just one of the wonderful recipes that will be featured at HEB’s Tex Fest which goes on the first couple of weeks of March.
