MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 20, 2014

We added sour cream and left out the jalapeno. We first served it with rice, which worked well because the broth was probably our favorite part. When we reheated it, we no longer had rice and accidentaly discovered it was very yummy with crackers too. Our one disappointment was that the ham pieces themselves lost all flavor in the cooking; seemingly having donated all to the broth.
