Reserve 1 Tbsp. bacon for garnish; stir remaining bacon into bean mixture. Spoon into microwaveable serving bowl; cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate up to 24 hours.
Vent plastic wrap covering green bean mixture. Microwave on HIGH 6 to 8 min. or until heated through, stirring after 4 min. Top with reserved bacon.
