    What's your favorite soup or stew recipe?

     I know there have been some good recipes and ideas posted, but since the weather is cooling off, I thought it might be a good idea to round up your favorites all in one thread. I love soup and stew and make them often. What are your favorite soups or stews?

    Re: What's your favorite soup or stew recipe?

     Ham and Cheese

    This is best with collard greens, but you can use almost any green and it's still good.

    1 cup chopped ham
    1/2 cup fresh greens
    1 cup chopped broccoli and/or cauliflower (I use stems and small leaves - the trimmings of either) 

    Two quarts of water 

    Cook until the greens are done, about 15 minutes.

    Add enough cheddar cheese to make the soup milky, but not thick. Add salt if needed.

    This is really good with homemade bread.
