I like pairing Corona with spicy foods... I won't taste the Corona anyway so it isn't a big deal. It is definitely a cheap, relatively low class beer but I won't slight it by saying that it doesn't have its place. This beer is good for pairing with Mexican food, it really is. Often a more complex beer will have strange interactions with spicy foods, but not Corona. You can count on still being able to taste your food while swigging down this slightly intoxicating yellow liquid.

I have had friends call Corona "Mexican p*** water" and I respectfully disagree. I still think that Corona triumphs over its American counterparts such as Budweiser.
