  • Brown ground beef, drain, and add taco seasoning and water as instructed on the taco seasoning packet. Stir in refried beans.
  • Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute onion in olive oil over medium-high heat until tender. Add in garlic and cook one minute.
  • Stir in beer and cook 3 minutes until very bubbly. Stir in cheese, one handful at a time, until cheese is completely melted. Remove from heat. Cheese will thicken as it stands, so stir in milk as necessary to thin it out.
  • Fill taco boats with taco meat mixture, pico de gallo, and drizzled beer cheese. Serve immediately.
