Cosy Ham-And-Bean Soup

Cosy Ham-And-Bean Soup created by MsSally

This is out of Chatelaine mag. It has low fat, protein and very healthy veggies and taste good too. This asks for black beans but I have used pinto (didn't have the black on hand)with fine results so I would say to use the beans you like the best. For ZWT this is in the Spanish devision because of the olive oil, garlic and tomato. This was a combo that my dad loved and used often, he was a grand Son of Spain who was born in Andalusia shortly before my grand parents moved to the U.S.

  • Coat a large saucepan with oil and set over medium-high heat.
  • Add carrots, garlic and onion. Sprinkle with paprika, chili powder, oregano and salt.

  • While onion is cooking, coarsely chop tomatoes.
  • Add ham to onion mixture and stir often until ham is lightly browned, about 2 minutes.

    Hi Folks, I made this tonight with dried Lima beans & it was the Best Ham & Bean Soup , ever...Delish. Who knew, to add some spicy spices would make a dull bland soup pop ??? I made no adjustments , just right . I have saved to my recipe box & will make again ...Thank You !

    This is an outstanding soup! Such great flavor in a relatively short amount of time. I made just as directed (ok maybe used a bit more Tabasco 'cause we love the stuff!) and would not change a thing. Hearty and flavorful - loved it - thanks for sharing the recipe!
