Step 1:



Chop your garlic and cilantro. We're also making guacamole, where we'll also use garlic and cilantro, so chop extra

Step 2:






Now add add a few cloves of garlic, a few tablespoons of cilantro, a splash of olive oil, the juice from half a lime, salt and pepper, and your Mexican beer to the meat. Rub it all into the meat (don't poke) and let it [COLOR=#2B65B0 ! important]marinate[/COLOR] in the fridge for about 6 hours.

Step 3:








Now we make guacamole. You'll now need 1 nice, large ripe avocado, cumin, coriander, chili powder, red pepper flakes, 1 good tomato, a shallot (optional), habanero sauce(also optional), and a serrano pepper which is not pictured. I prefer heirloom tomatoes, they're very expensive but infinitely better than typical tomatoes and have much more meat and a much much better flavor.

Step 4:






Look for avocados that are large, heavy for their size, free of blemishes and ever-so-slightly soft to the touch. To cut, slice in half around the pit, then WHACK a large heavy knife into the pit. Twist the pit and it will pop out on the knife.
