    This is a great way to use leftover ham from the holidays, especially on cold night! I added a little cayenne pepper to kick it up. I will definitely add this one to my favorites!

    This is delicious. I did not add the potatoes. My entire family loves this recipe. It's a definite keeper. My mom was skeptical and told me that is not how she made ham and beans but after she tried it she said it was very good too. I served with sweet corn bread.

    I made this when I first saw the recipe in 2008. The first time I didn't have the ham-flavored soup base, so I used chicken soup base instead. It turned out wonderful with either ham or chicken soup base. Since all the beans are canned, it is the easiest bean soup I've ever made and it has the added bonus of providing plenty of leftovers that freeze very well.
