Cook bacon until crisp in skillet or saucepan; take up. In the hot oil cook onion, celery and carrot until thoroughly heated. Add beans, liquid, barbecue sauce and mustard, mixing lightly. Simmer 15 minutes, adding more liquid if needed. Just before serving, stir in green pepper and barbecue chips and heat a minute or two longer. Serve topped with bacon.  Makes 4 big servings.
