    I use chicken and chili seasonings instead of ham. A Little tip when making any bean soup- always add carrots- avoid flatulence! - 2/22/09

    I loved this soup! I used the review and added carrots and no gas! I added a few more tomatoes to thicken it up. Don't worry about the extra calories...it is so filling you don't really need a full serving and the protein and fiber keep you full for a long time! - 5/7/10

    I'm alergic to pork. Can you believe that? I love ham! I discovered I can use smoked turkey legs as a substitute.
    I make large quainities of this soup in various ways but changing up the spices. It's always a hit. - 5/29/09

  • My DH and I love this soup; make it every time we have a ham bone-- always plenty of meat for soup left on the bone. I leave out the tomatoes and the seasoning packet, adding more garlic and a little red pepper flakes. - 4/8/13

  • This is a great soup. Have made it many times. I do not use the seasoning packet at all - just don't like the flavor. Add own seasoning instead. It can be varied and adjusted to taste in so many ways. - 3/14/13

I served it with many grains bread - 1/1/12
