Picante Black Bean Soup

This is my mother's recipe. She makes about three homemade soups every week, and this is one of my favorites. It couldn't be any more simple to make...just cook some bacon, sautee some onions, and then throw the rest in the pot. And, I promise, it tastes better than this picture makes it look! It's great with a loaf of good, crusty bread.
What You'll Need:
4 slices Bacon, diced
1 Onion, chopped
1 clove Garlic, minced
2 (15 oz) cans Black Beans
1 can Beef Broth
1 1/4 cups Water
3/4 cup Pace Picante Sauce
1/2 tsp. Oregano
1/2 tsp. Salt
What you'll Do:
In a heavy pot, brown the bacon and remove.
Sautee the onion until tender.
Add the garlic and sautee just another minute.
Add the bacon back in with all other ingredients and simmer for 30 minutes.
