   lumps with a fork and cook over medium-high heat,
   stirring occasionally, until the meat is evenly
   browned.
   
   4. Stir in the remaining ingredients except the beans
   and the bacon. Bring to a boil, then lower the heat
   and simmer, uncovered, for 2 hours. Stir occasionally.
   
   5. Taste and adjust seasonings. Stir in the beans and
   the bacon, and simmer for 1/2 hour longer.
