This is a keeper for my family. I added minced garlic and saut?ed the peppers, onion and garlic before adding the liquid. Other than adding the garlic, I followed the recipe exactly and it came out with great flavor. I also added some chopped scallions for color. My kids went back for seconds and concluded its better and lighter than my slow-cooker corn chowder (also a TOH recipe). We will make this again.

This soup is good and a different way to use leftover ham. I have made it twice and added garlic and chopped potatoes. This is a keeper.

This was pretty good, but next time I think I will add some garlic to liven it up a little more... Very pretty soup to look at:)
