I assume you mean that Double Clicking the .tex document opens it in TeXworks. Right-Click or Ctl-Click on an .tex file and choose Get Info… . With the Info window open click on the triangle next to Open with: if that isn't already open. Click on the application popup and select TeXShop (or TeXShop.app if you are showing extensions) and then press Change All… . Allow the change for all files with extension .tex. That should do it.

Good Luck,
