Salsa Borracha

My favorite hotel in Mexico introduced me to this salsa/sauce. I had it so often with everything they gave me the recipe. Enjoy this with chips, nachos, quesadillas, tacos, chicken, or anything. Use it within the first couple of days though, the beer should still be fresh. If not, freeze it and take it out for parties.

Also great on fish tacos.
