  • Cook and stir bacon and onions in Dutch oven or small stockpot on medium heat until bacon is crisp. Remove bacon mixture from pan with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Discard all but 2 Tbsp. drippings from pan.
  • Add beans and broth to reserved drippings; mix well. Bring to boil; cover. Simmer on medium-low heat 5 min. Add bacon mixture and all remaining ingredients; mix lightly. Return to boil; cook, uncovered, 7 to 9 min. or until beans are cooked to desired doneness, stirring occasionally.
  • Use slotted spoon to transfer bean mixture to serving dish, reserving broth mixture in pan; cover beans to keep warm. Cook broth mixture 2 to 3 min. or until thickened to syrup-like consistency, stirring frequently. Pour over bean mixture.

Food Facts

Look for visual cues to tell when your beans are getting old: brown spots, withered tips, and bean seed shapes that protrude from the shell mean the end is near. If they've become wet or slimy, they're no longer good. Keep beans fresh longer (for up to a week) by storing them in a resealable plastic bag in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator.

Safely Storing Bacon

Store unopened packages of bacon in the refrigerator until the "Use by Date" stamped on the package. Once opened, wrap tightly and refrigerate for up to 1 week. For longer storage, wrap the unopened, vacuum-sealed package tightly in freezer-safe material, then freeze for up to 1 month. Or if you prefer your bacon slices individually frozen, separate slices and place on parchment paper-covered baking sheet. Freeze until firm, then transfer to freezer-weight resealable plastic bag. Alternately, roll up individual bacon slices lengthwise and place in freezer-weight resealable plastic bag before freezing. Thaw in refrigerator before using.
