    Chris from Kansas's Note:

    This soup is really good and easy. If you have more time, you can use fresh vegetables instead of canned, but I like it either way. My family loves this on a cold winter's day. I believe this recipe is from Taste of Home magazine.

      We really enjoyed this soup. I did make a major change though. I used two cans of white beans. One I used as directed, and the other one I pureed in the blender with half of the onions and a little chicken broth. This gave our soup a creamier, thicker texture and great flavor. I did use all fresh veggies and enjoyed that, however we felt the carrots did not go with this soup at all and after a bite or two of the carrots, I started eating around them. I love carrots, they just didn't work for me here! I wasn't sure if DH would like this as he's picky about soups but he asked for another bowl as a late night snack!! Such a great way to use up leftover ham! OH we also sprinkled a little shredded cheddar cheese on top of the hot soup!! Great addition.

      Very yummy, I left out the carrots because I do not like cooked carrots, otherwise the soup was wonderful. I did use fresh potatoes.

      This is a great, fast, easy to make ham and bean soup. It has a great semi-spicy taste. I didn't make any changes and my family loved it.
