This is actually one of our favorites and looked forward to every single time we have a nice ham. We've dug into the Easter ham for days after the initial meal that I made in the crockpot (9lb spiral sliced ham). The recipe we enjoy is very simple, but it takes some time to simmer the old ham bone down to completely naked. There's a special ingredient in this recipe that gives the soup a bit of zing, chili powder. Here's the ham bone simmering in the browned onions and peppers which had been deglazed with a bit of whiskey and then I added chicken broth and water. Still to be added are the diced tomatoes, cubed potatoes and kidney beans.
