Step 1

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a rimmed baking sheet with heavy-duty aluminum foil. In a large saucepan, combine beans and water to cover. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; reduce heat, and simmer 3 minutes. Drain; plunge beans into ice water to stop the cooking process, and drain again.
Wrap about 5 beans in 1/2 slice bacon. Place seam side down on prepared baking sheet. Repeat process with remaining beans and bacon.
In a small bowl combine brown sugar, chili powder, and butter. Spoon mixture over green bean bundles. Bake 30 to 40 minutes, or until bacon is crisp. Serve immediately.
