DIRECTIONS

  • In a large pot combine chicken broth, water, ham bone, chicken bouillon cubes and all dry seasonings and bring to a boil on the stove for 2 minutes.
  • Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 1 hour.
  • In a separate pan, sauté onions, carrots, and celery in oil and add to soup.
  • Sauté potato and garlic together in oil and add to soup.
  • Add celery and cilantro leaves to soup.
  • Stir soup and simmer 30 more minutes.
  • Pull ham bone out of soup, cool, and slice/pull meat off bone and add to soup. I usually get about 1 cup of meat out of this.
  • Sauté remaining cubed ham in leftover oil and add to soup.
  • Add beans, and petite diced tomatoes to soup. Cover and simmer an additional 30 minute.
  • Great served with hot buttered French bread.
