Super Split Pea Soup


This is one soup that is easy to make and easily satisfies. Add your own flair to this standard recipe by including extra spice (try adding a whole jalapeño as it simmers), a touch of meatiness (include ½ cup of cubed smoked ham or turkey), and visual appeal (place a dollop of low fat sour cream on each serving).
