It's time to talk tacos, margaritas, chips and salsa, fajitas, and more!

Nothing hits the spot better than sizzling fajitas...or crispy tacos ...or just "chips and queso".

Today, it's all about Tex-Mex! We’ll talk about what you love to cook or order, and your "go-to" local restaurants.

An award-winning Houston chef and food writer chats with listeners who call in to share their favorite dishes and what makes Tex-Mex such a fine food and family tradition.

Plus, Alley Theatre just announced their 2022–2023 season! We’ll hear about what they're presenting to Houston audiences from a world premiere about a female bullfighter to a new adaption of a Christmas Carol.
