A favorite recipe coming from the dog-eared page in my Southern Living magazine. I have used bacon in place of the ham in this recipe with delicious results!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter in a large pan over medium heat.
  2. Saute ham and onions for 5 minutes.
  3. Except for the red bell pepper, add the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Bring to a boil.
  5. Reduce heat to low, cook and cover for 15-20 minutes adding the red bell pepper for the last 2-3 minutes.

I must have done this wrong, because 2 cups of chicken broth was no where near enough liquid to cover all the ingredients in the pot in order to bring everything to a boil. :( Luckily enough I had an extra can on hand. It took 3 cups and a little extra in all. Apart from this recipe was REALLY good!

This was very good! I decreased the butter to 1 tablespoon to make it slightly healthier and it was still yummy Southern comfort food. Thanks for posting!
