    I will try this soup, but I wish that ALL recipes would say what the size of the serving is....1 cup? 1.5 cup? To say that it has 12 servings does not really help me plan. - 9/2/13

  • This was really, really good! We had juice left from cooking the ham and threw that in with the broth, and that made it a bit thinner. But using the immersion blender thickened it up. - 4/19/12

  • I make this soup all the time with all ingredients as listed except I have in the past used pinto beans. I have been wanting to try black beans so next time I make it black beans will be used. This is a very good soup, we like it with cornbread or frito corn chips. - 3/9/10

  • Great alernative to traditional bean soup for leftover holiday ham. Jalepeno adds just the right kick - not too hot, but definitely spicy - 12/3/07
