    Francine Washington from Trenton MI

    This was so easy to make and it was delicious.... I think I'm going to put the beans in the blender because I have some picky eaters in my house. That way they don't have to **** into a bean heee heee sneaky sneaky

    I love this soup. I make it everytime I make a spiral ham and I love spiral ham. The soup is filling and so tasty. I just omit the peas.

    Easy and Yummy

    Misty Thompson from Norfolk, VA

    I made this with some left over ham so I did not have as much as the recipe call for, but I added extra peas and beans. It was very tasty, and without asking my husband said this recipe was a keeper.

    I loved this recipe. Instead of peas, I substituted carrots, as I have an allergy to peas. But this reciped was still very good.
