Caribbean-Style Black Beans With Rum

“This is still really good even without the rum, but better with it! you can reduce the rum to 1/4 cup or increase it to 1/2 cup if desired! Use a dry smoked sausage for this, chorizo would work fine, although I have only made this using smoked sausage, I imagine that thick-sliced bacon could replace the smoked sausage. Adjust the Tabasco sauce to suit taste.”
