In a large stockpot, add the beans and 5 cups of chicken broth and let it boil. As the soup is boiling, remove the scum it produces.
In medium sauté pan or frying pan, melt the butter and cook the garlic and onion until it becomes translucent. Then, add in the chopped bacon and stir for 10 minutes in medium heat.
