As one of the oldest beers produced in Mexico, Dos Equis is all about being authentic and staying true to its cultural roots

So this year, Dos Equis is putting authenticity back onto the menu by partnering with Mexican-Canadian Chef Paula Zavala and encouraging Canadians to get out of their taco-comfort zone.

  • 12 Small Flour tortillas
  • 3 Tbsp Dos Equis beer

  2. Place the shredded cheese in the pan covering all the surface, add the chorizo on top and the beer.
  3. Cover the pan, lower the heat and wait until the cheese is melted, do not
    stir! Or place the pan into a 350F oven for 10 minutes.
