The reincarnation of El Naranjo, in Austin, has been recognized as the best Mexican restaurant in the city. Before the brick and mortar restaurant came into being, De La Vega owned El Naranjo Mobile and Catering, a successful food trailer that was called,“ the only real Mexican restaurant in Texas” by The Texas Monthly.

She is a passionate teacher, and she served as the Mexican/Latin Cuisines Specialist for The Culinary Institute of America (CIA) from 2007 to 2012.

She was a 2019 James Beard Award semifinalist for Best Chef: Southwest.
