“Being a GB Packers fan, I just HAD to make my pea soup like this!!! Remember that nice meaty ham bone you have leftover from Christmas...or perhaps the one in the freezer from Easter??? Use it in this recipe. you could also add a couple chopped tomatoes. Like any soup or chili, this is best when made a day or 2 ahead of time & reheated to really enjoy the flavors!”
