Bacon and chipotle chiles permeate the beans with smoky flavor. Reserve some of the water the beans cook in for this dish; if you've discarded that liquid, use water or chicken broth instead. Start with one-half cup of the cooking liquid--if the beans are too thick, add additional liquid one-fourth cup at a time.
