For a different spin on traditional split pea soup, try this recipe. The flavor is peppery rather than smoky, and the corned beef is an unexpected, tasty change of pace. -Barbara Link, Alta Loma, California

I still can't believe that I threw everything into a pot, put it on the stove, and 75 minutes later I had the world's best soup! This was so outrageously good! I will never make ham and bean soup again! I used a ham hock for this recipe. I will definitely make again!!!
