Drunken Cowboy Beans

I got the original recipe from a friend but then I kicked it up and made it drunk. It's way better with the tequila and tasso or chorizo sausage, but you can use your favorite sausage or even ground beef if you like. This goes great with BBQ, steaks, or any Tex-Mex dishes that need a little side kick.
