1 10-oz. can diced tomatoes and green chiles
(preferably Ro*Tel brand)
2 tbsp. lager-style beer (such as Corona)
2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. chili powder
1⁄2 tsp. kosher salt

1. In a 2-qt. saucepan, stir together diced tomatoes and green chiles, beer, cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper, and garlic. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to low and simmer until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 5 minutes.
