Leftover ham is never wasted in this hearty bean and ham soup. Made with dried haricot beans, fresh carrots and diced celery. Enjoy with buttered crusty bread.
Delicious recipe, I changed a couple of things. I used pinto beans instead its what I had and I added 1 tsp. brown sugar and 1/8 tsp. cayenne pepper, it was hit in my family. I have made this a couple times already, it remains our favorite ham and bean soup. I did add chicken stock for some of the liquid. So goood!! - 26 Nov 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Great way to use leftover ham. My only change: substituted 2 cans vegetable broth (low salt)for some of the water and doubled up the vegetables. Even the teenagers ate this. Cooked on simmer all day - thickened nicely. Froze well. - 30 Dec 2006 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I loved this soup. It was SUper easy. I did double the amount of seasoning and added a couple of extra carrots. I also cooked it in the crockpot for about 6 hours. It was perfect for a chilly day and even better the next day. - 06 Dec 2007 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
