The basis for this soup's broth conveniently comes from canned bean soup. Everyone who tries this comments on how nicely the smoky flavor of ham blends with the vegetables.

Ingredients

  • 2 pounds smoked ham hocks
  • 4 medium carrots, sliced
  • 1 cup thinly sliced celery
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 8 cups water
  • 2-1/2 cups diced unpeeled red potatoes
  • 1 cup each frozen corn, peas and cut green beans
  • 1 can (11-1/2 ounces) condensed bean and bacon soup, undiluted
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. Place ham hocks, carrots, celery, onion and water in a Dutch oven or soup kettle; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 2-1/2 hours or until meat starts to all off the bones.
  2. Add potatoes and vegetables; bring to a boil oil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 1 hour. Remove hocks; allow to cool. Remove meat from bones and cut into bite-size pieces; discard bones. Return meat to kettle. Stir in bean and bacon soup and pepper; heat through.
