Succotash Soup

READY IN: 4hrs 10mins
Recipe by Marla Swoffer

Bacon is the key ingredient in this savory combination of lima beans, corn, and tomatoes. I used a crockpot but it could easily be adapted to the stovetop.

This is a very good recipe that could, for my taste, be a bit better. The next time I do this I plan to: add --
¼ cup diced green pepper.
¼ cup celery.
Maybe some diced onion.
2 bay leaves.
A dash of liquid smoke or use smoked bacon.
Tabasco. (A few dashes.)

Then cover the whole uncooked mix with some more chicken broth.

Again, I liked this and plan to do it again!
