I cooked this soup tonight and the whole family thought it was great. It couldn't have been any easier to put together and the taste was fantastic! I couldn't find any cajun tomatoes, so I used tomatoes with chilies and added some cajun seasoning. This is one that will definitely go in my favorites.

I made this for supper last night. It was absolutely delicious. Hearty ham and bean flavor with the zest of the cajun tomatoes and spices. I did as you suggested and served over rice and with your sour cream corn bread. My husband and I were totally thrilled with this yummy southern fare. Thanks Nurse Di.

We thought this was delicious and so simple to make, didn't even have to chop onions. I did add a cup of smoked sausage because I didn't have enough ham. I also like a variety of beans so I used red, black, and white beans. I didn't have cajun stewed tomatoes, so just used the original recipe and I did have to add more liquid, it all was still great. Tried it as is and also over rice, liked it both ways. This was so good on a day we were painting the house and didn't have time to cook. Thanks!
