This was a great split pea soup. Like a few other reviewers, I left out the orzo, and added a couple of diced potatoes, because we are big potato fans at our house. Otherwise, I made the recipe almost exactly as written (on the stovetop, though). I didn't have the chipotle chili powder on hand, so I subbed 1 teaspoon of smoked paprika for the smokiness, and 1 teaspoon of sriracha hot sauce for the heat (any hot sauce would have worked, I think). I think this gave a pretty good approximation of the chipotle chili peppers, which only added to what I thought was a perfect balance of peas, liquid, and vegetables that was indicated by the recipe writer. Delicious!
