Wanna get everyone's attention? Top each bowlful of this with crispy homemade croutons. And to be real Southern, make croutons with cubes of leftover corn bread that you toss with butter and toast in the oven. Oh, what a classic!

What You'll Need:
  • 3 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 (16-ounce) package frozen butter beans, thawed (see Note)
  • 1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 (15-ounce) can sliced potatoes, drained
  • 1 (8¼-ounce) can sliced carrots, drained
  • 1/2 pound cooked ham, diced (see Note)
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
What To Do:
  1. In a soup pot, combine all ingredients and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.
     
  2. Reduce heat to low and simmer 30 minutes to allow flavors to marry and soup to thicken.
Notes

Sure, you can use two 16-ounce cans of butter beans in place of the frozen ones. And, for the ham, use leftovers or get 1/2 pound thick-cut ham from the deli and dice that up. Go with whatever you've got on hand.
