  • 8 cups warm water, or more as needed

  • 4 cubes chicken bouillon

  • 1 (28 ounce) can diced tomatoes

  • 1 (15 ounce) can kidney beans, rinsed and drained

  • 1 (10 ounce) ham bone with meat

  • 4 medium potatoes, peeled and chopped

  • 1 medium onion, diced

  • 1 cup cubed leftover ham, or more to taste

  • 1 (16 ounce) package elbow macaroni, or more to taste


  1. Combine 8 cups water and bouillon cubes in a slow cooker; stir until bouillon is dissolved. Add tomatoes, beans, ham bone, potatoes, onion, and leftover ham. Cook on Low until ham is coming off the bone, about 8 hours. Taste and add another cup of water if too salty.

  2. When the soup is almost done, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes.

  3. Drain macaroni and add desired amount to the soup.

  4. Remove ham bone. Shred meat and discard bone. Return meat to the soup, stir to combine, and serve.
