Serve this flavorful soup with hot baked cornbread and a salad.

Cook Time: 35 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 to 6 ounces country ham or smoked ham, diced
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 8 medium green tomatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 2 medium red tomatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeds and stem removed, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon celery salt
  • dash Tabasco sauce, optional
  • salt and pepper, to taste


Heat butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat; add ham, onion, and garlic. Sauté, stirring, until onion is tender. Add chicken broth, chopped green and red tomatoes, and minced jalapeno pepper. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer for about 30 minutes.

Working in batches, pulse in a blender or food processor until almost smooth. Pour back into the saucepan and add celery salt. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Taste and add salt and pepper and Tabasco sauce, as desired.

Light but filling, Member Rancher_Girl

I am giving the recipe 4 stars for inspiration. To me the soup needed more body, so I added chopped carrots, some chopped spinach, more onion and ham than called for. Homemade stock would help, too. All that said, the unexpected early freeze left us with pounds and pounds of green tomatoes and I had already put up chutney and had lots of tomatoes left. So I was happy to come across this recipe.
