For a different spin on split pea soup, try this recipe. The flavor is peppery rather than smoky.

MY REVIEW

"This is my favorite split pea soup of all I have tried. It's very flavorful and has just the right consistency for me -- not too thick and not to thin. I'm very happy to have found it."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 2, 2013

"This was awesome! We substituted the water with vegetable broth, and sweet potatoes for regular baking potatoes, added garlic and shortened cooking time to about an hour. No salt is needed at all, this was very flavorful! We used ham and served with warm cornbread! This is a winner!!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 24, 2012

"I have made this many times since I first saw it years ago in Taste of Home. As I remember it was submitted by a lady from my town of Alta Loma, California--so I had to try it! It is a family favorite many times over. I made it tonight for Christmas Eve, for the first time with bacon instead of ham. Hoping for good results as usual."

"This is not only hearty, but a little different twist to split pea soup. Made this for company tonight, they thought it was delicious. Will make it again, and again."
