Drunken Black Beans Preparation

Place beans onto a large tray and pick through them. Wash beans and set aside. Render fat from bacon in a large stockpot over medium heat. Add chorizo and cook until the sausage is breaking apart, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add onions and carrot and saute for 3 minutes. Add garlic, jalapenos, ham hock, and epazote and saute for 1 minute. Add beer and reduce for 3 minutes. Add beans and chicken stock and bring to a boil. Dissolve cornstarch in tequila and stir into boiling chicken stock little by little until mixture is slightly thickened. Reduce heat to a simmer, season with salt, and cook stirring occasionally for 1 hour or until beans are soft. The beans at this stage should be thick. Remove ham hock. Add cilantro and lime juice. Recheck salt seasoning.
