5 16 oz cans any beans
1 green pepper, chopped
1 sweet onion chopped
1 1/2 pounds ground beef
2 cloves minced garlic, or 2 tsp. powder
1 1/2 tsp chili powder
1 1/2 tsp oregano
3/4 tsp. salt
2 TBSP. vinegar
1/2 C ketchup
1/2 C brown sugar
6 slices bacon

Cook and crumble bacon, set aside.  Brown beef in bacon pan.  In separate bowl, make a sauce of the garlic, spices, vinegar, ketchup and brown sugar.  

For a soup, do not drain beans and combine all ingredients in large pot.  Cook for about an hour.

For a casserole, darin beans, combine all ingredients in large casserole dish and bake @ 350 degrees for 1 hour.
