This is an excellent recipe, but knowing what we like, I tweaked it. I replaced the water with 2 , 141/2 oz cans chicken broth (reduced sodium). I used 1 1/2 cups ham. In addition to the other ingredients, I added 1/3 cup finely diced mushrooms, 1/3 cup finely chopped carrots, Swanson chicken "flavor boost" instead of bullion, NO salt as flavor boost adds all the salt necessary. I increased pepper to 1 1/2 tsp., but that is a matter of taste. I also added garlic powder to taste. Probably about 1/8 tsp. I replaced milk with half & half. When served, I topped individual bowls of soup with crisp bacon pieces, green onions and cheddar cheese. I served with hot sour dough bread. As my husband says, "it's a keeper"!
