Anyone know a way to make the AutoCompleteTextView display based on a pattern that's not anchored to the first text column?

I'd like to present a suggestion list that when you type in "bean", the list would show items like "Red Beans", "Pinto Beans", "Rice and Beans", "Bean Soup" and so forth.

An IDE is no substitute for an Intelligent Developer.
