Servings: 6 to 8
This hearty soup puts the meaty bone from a leftover baked ham to excellent use. Pinto beans work fine, but if you can find them, bolita beans are creamier and a bit sweeter. This soup freezes well for up to 3 months.

This is an amazing use for a leftover ham bone. It’s an incredibly warm and comforting soup. I had contemplated using canned beans, but the dried beans were so good that I think it’s worth the extra planning. The sweet potato got pretty mushy after 30 minutes so I probably could have finished it sooner, but I don’t think the soup suffered for it.
Great receipe; easy to follow instructions. Substituted with canned navy beans since bolita was not available and added cooking sherry; it was wonderful.
