Ham and Green Bean Soup
The first time I made the recipe, I used 2 pounds of green beans. I thought it was a bit much, and I wanted a little more broth. The second time I made it, I doubled the recipe and used 3 pounds of green beans, and it turned out exactly to my liking. Try it both ways.
First time, I used 1 1/2 pounds of ham, second time I used just a little diced deli ham; it was good both ways! You can cook a ham bone with the beans, if you have one, and can substitute kielbasa for the ham.
Make sure to stir sour cream mixture into cooled beans; if not cool enough, sour cream will curdle.
