  • 1 Dash Chili-salt blend (We use Tajín)
  • 2 oz Lime Juice (Fresh is best)
  • 2 tsp Hot sauce (Mexican style is best)
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 dash Salt
  • 12 oz Light Mexican beer


  • Add chili-salt to a wide, shallow dish to cover the bottom. Rub the rim of the glass with water or lime juice from the squeezed lime. Dip the glass into the salt to create a chili-salt rimmed glass.
