This recipe is a great starting point and the perfect "leftovers" soup! We made quite a few modifications from the original recipe (mostly due to what ingredients we had on hand). We used the ham bone from Christmas, added some carrots, only 3 little red potatoes (that was all we had left after the holiday!), celery, green onions, 1 shallot, a cup of Uncle Bens, some garlic, black pepper, and green beans. We didn't have any diced tomatoes or kidney beans in the pantry so we left those ingredients out. We also used canned chicken broth (5 regular sized cans because the rice soaked up some liquid to cook). The rice really added some "meat" to the soup. Just like most other reviews said, don't add any salt - there is plenty!
