"Here's a rich and hearty split pea soup with a twist. Since the peas do not need to be pre-soaked, it can be put together quickly and easily. For a little added smokiness and spice, dice up a couple chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, and add them with the other herbs and spices."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

yellow onion, diced
low-sodium beef broth
dried split peas
carrot, peeled and diced
potatoes, peeled and diced
coarsely ground black pepper
crushed red pepper flakes
2 1/2 pounds
smoked turkey legs
water, or as needed
2 1/2 tablespoons
sour cream, for garnish
This is a very flavorful soup but rather than six cups of beef broth try six cups water with two tablespoons of ham base. There are several delicious varieties sold in jars.
We no longer eat pork and my wife loves pea soup being a French Canadian. So, I smoked turkey hind quarters in our baraque smoker. I also used my own turkey broth I made from our last roast turkey. She just loved it and so did I, and I don't care for pea soup, but this one was too good not to eat. I didn't put in all the chilli flakes as my little French girl dosn't like things to hot, but the soup was sooooo, good.I served it with a Johnny Cake I made, and now I have a happy wife. I would not change anything except less chilli peppers. Thank you for the great recipe WileyP
