Grilled Watermelon with Queso Fresco

Wednesday officially marked the beginning of summer and the start my favorite season. Maybe it is the fact I grew up in Arizona and still get all the feels when I head to the pool, but I have always loved summer.  There are a few things that really get me into the summer spirit: pool days, watermelon and cook outs. Maybe this is why Fourth of July has always been my favorite holiday.

To kick off the season, we invited a few friends over for a little summer solstice get-together. My favorite thing to do for a casual week night dinner is to cook the entire meal on the grill with a little help from La Vaquita.

I definitely wouldn’t call myself a pro in the kitchen, but there are a few items on my rotating menu that I have been told from time to time are the best they’ve ever had. One of those meals is breakfast tacos. Simple, yet delicious and if you live in Texas, you know tacos are a staple no matter what time of day.

With breakfast tacos being on our menu at least four times a week, I like to switch up my recipe and add fresh ingredients to keep the hubs on his toes.  Honestly, the key to good breakfast tacos is fresh ingredients.

The fluffy eggs, Queso Fresco crumbles, avocado slices combined with the crunch of the watermelon radish and jalapeño make for the perfect marriage of flavors.  Then I drizzled a little of the Crema Mexicana to offset the heat of the jalapeños and let me tell you, it was perfection.  This recipe has become the most requested dish in our house. The best part, it takes less than 15 minutes to prepare.
