  2. Cook the beef in the same pan with the bacon fat until browned. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cover to allow the beef to cook for a few minutes and release its juices.
  3. Meanwhile, combine the garlic, tomatillos, chillies and a spoonful of the beef in a blender. Add the water and blend until smooth.

  5. Just before serving, stir the bacon and beans into the beef mixture; divide the mixture between 6 bowls. Garnish each with onion, coriander and a lime wedge.
