My husband LOVES this soup! I used to make only 6 servings, but now I always make 12 and it still usually only lasts an extra day! Take some time with this recipe -- it's worth it! I serve this hearty soup in bread bowls with a salad on the side.

This was just O-K. Once all the ingredients were combined, I could tell that, in all, it just wasn't that interesting. Soooo, I added a little (well, actually a lot) of red pepper. It definitely kicked it up and made the soup a lot more tasty. I also used about 3 times more ham than what is called for; it helped things along too. All in all, there was still something missing, but I couldn't put my finger on what it was. I will likely not be making this again; all the family could muster is, "well, it's different for sure".

I don't make a lot of soup with rice, but this recipe is so good! I had some ham to use up, plus some half and half, so it was perfect. The only thing that I did different was add some cayenne pepper just before serving, and used a wild rice mix, as that is all I had. We like most things with a little "kick". We had it with salad and crusty french bread, and it was wonderful! Thank you for posting. It will be on our special soup list from now on.
