"My husband, David, and I volunteer at our American Legion post, cooking dinner on Friday nights," says Lee Hawk of San Diego, California. "David, who loves beams, concocted this hearty soup that combines limas and great northerns with cubes of ham and chopped vegetables. I like to serve it with corn bread."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 7, 2014

"This recipe has been in my favorite recipe rotation for several years. To keep it low fat use a lean packaged ham or leftover meat from ham dinner. Everyone who has eaten this; young, old, and in between find it filling, warm, and yummy. Recipe makes a large quantity!!"
