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.

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.
