How to Make Drunken Cowboy Beans
- Saute onions in a little olive oil, add spices and sausage. Cook till onions are clear. Add drained beans and enough water to cover.
Bring to boil and reduce to simmer for 1 1/2 hours.
- Add salsa and tequila, cook until beans are tender, about another 1 1/2 hours, adding water if needed, but not too much. Beans should be thick.
- Taste and add salt and pepper as needed.
Garnish with chopped cilantro or sliced jalapenos if desired.
