Fresh Fig Margarita

This fresh fig margarita is a tasty twist on everyone's favorite salty-rimmed tequila and lime cocktail.

I decided to try this fresh Fig Margarita when my cousin gave me a precious bag of four perfectly ripe figs from her Mission Fig tree. If you get perfectly ripe figs, you need to use them right away. It was the weekend, so why not a cocktail?

If you've ever made a bread with a tangzhong (a small amount of the flour and milk and water in the dough that is cooked and cooled), you know about the light and fluffy results in rolls, sandwich breadbao buns, and even hot dog buns. Why not doughnuts?

One of my favorite chilis is prepared on the stove top or in a slow cooker. My favorite macaroni and cheese is baked in the oven. How do you marry them? You make chili mac!
