Bean-and-Ham Soup

From: Southern Living

3 cans northern beans, divided
1 can chicken broth, divided
2 Tbsp butter
1 small onion, diced
8 oz cooked ham, cubed
1/4 tsp pepper

Rinse and drain beans. Process one-third can of beans and half of chicken broth in a food processor until smooth. Set aside.

Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion, and saute 5 minutes or until onion is tender. Add ham, and saute 10 minutes or until lightly browned, stirring constantly.

Add bean puree, remaining beans, and remaining chicken broth. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Stir in pepper. Serve immediately.

Thumbs up! Very simple, filling soup. Great flavors - I love ham and bean together. Great consistency with the blended beans. Hunter (my 2-year old) was gobbling this up! I would definitely recommend this soup for the ease with which you can make it and the yummy flavor!
