3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 cup water
1 to 2 chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, or 1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1 (12-ounce) bottle beer (I like to use Pacifico or Negra Modelo)

8 to 12 small corn tortillas, warmed, for serving
1 1/2  to 2 cups thinly sliced cabbage
2 limes, cut into wedges
