Pork pairs well with other ingredients, especially for these ham soup recipes, including corn chowder, ham and bean soup, ham and potato soup, sausage soup, ham and lentil soup, ham and split pea soup, ham chowder and more.
Chock-full of ham and broccoli, this flavorful soup is sure to warm spirits on a cool day. Add buttermilk biscuits and a simple spinach salad topped with bottled Italian dressing. Or, bake up golden corn bread muffins and open a can of fruit cocktail to complete this memorable meal.—Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
I'm always on the lookout for easy soups because my husband and I love them, particularly in the winter months. This cream chowder gets a little kick from cayenne and chopped jalapeno pepper. Extra servings freeze very well.
Here's a real gem! After tasting a similar soup at a popular restaurant in the Twin Cities, I came up with my own version. Everyone who tastes it says it's wonderful. Adding the almonds at the end gives the soup a fun crunch.

I invented this recipe one evening when I wanted to serve soup, but had no time to shop—so I used whatever I had on hand. When my husband said, "Please make it again", I hurriedly wrote down the ingredient list!—Mrs. J.C. Mantel, Orange City, Iowa
