This is easy to throw together with ingredients that are more than likely in your kitchen already. It's a great way to use up leftover ham bits, and is a nice, home-style soup to serve on a blustery day.

This is really a great soup! Easy, fast, and made from staples either in the fridge or freezer. I used frozen corn instead of canned, and an orange pepper instead of green, but otherwise made as written. I would make two small changes next time I make this- first, saute the onion and pepper before adding the rest of the ingredients; second, add a clove or two of garlic and saute with the vegetables. This was really great for a weeknight, and a wonderful way to use up leftover ham.
