Drunken Pinto Beans

Yes, you read that right! Drunken Pinto Beans.  They are a thing, and they are delicious! We served them with taco shells, rice, lettuce, tomatoes, limes, and cilantro; oh and some Micheladas.  DELISH!  This would be a great accompaniment to your #tacotuesday or a Cinco De Mayo Party!  They are drunken, so 21 and over only, please.  Bust out the limes and hot sauce and give these Drunken Pinto Beans a try!

Yes, they are a thing and they are scrumptious!  21 and over, please! 


  • 2 cans pinto beans, drained and rinsed
  • small onion, diced
  • jalapeno, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • cilantro
  • 1/2 cup lager, we used Tecate, but any good Mexican style lager will work (as always, don't cook with something you wouldn't drink)
  • Splash of tequila
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Saute onion and jalapeno in a 12 inche skillet over medium heat until soft; add garlic and cook briefly.
  2. Add the beans, beer, and tequila; cook until liquid has reduced but still a bit saucy.
  3. Add cilantro, salt, and pepper to taste.
