This is an adaptation of my favorite chicken tortilla soup recipe. If you have the calories to spare, make some tortilla chips in the oven to eat with the soup and top with a bit of sour cream, cheese, avocado and anything else you like! It is very flavorful on it's own, though. Be sure to use high-quality enchilada sauce, as some brands can be greasy. I like to add other veggies in sometimes, such as carrots and squash.

My aunt Gwen was a great cook and she kept go-to, quick recipes that were always as good as her spent-all-day-making recipes. This was one of my favorites from her go-to, quick list.Submitted by LADYPHOENIX61
Time to Pick a Bone
You can make a good ham and bean soup using just cubes of ham alone, but to get the best flavor you should use a ham bone. You can get your ham bone from the butcher, since they will often give them away or sell them very cheaply, or you can use a leftover bone from a ham that you have served for dinner.
If you are making a ham for dinner, then any leftover ham can be used in the soup as well. In fact, the best ham and bean soup recipes use both ham bones as well as cubes of ham.
This is a very nutritional soup, delicious on a cold winter day. Low fat, low cal, low carb, and rich in potassium and fiber. Serve with a whole wheat dinner roll or 9-grain bread.Submitted by CONNIE48036
