Originally from The Joy of Soup. All modifications my own.

Ham and Tomato Soup

2 C of cooked ham, cut into a large dice
1 onion, chopped
1 ½ C corn -- canned or frozen (thawed)
1 large can of peeled Italian style whole tomatoes
2 potatoes, peeled & cut into 1" dice
1 T soy sauce
1 tsp sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp Tabasco pepper sauce
3 C of chicken or vegetable broth

Squee-ee-ee-ze the tomatoes between your fingers to shred them into an interesting texture. Resist the temptation to use sliced, cut or crushed tomatoes for this soup - one of the best features of it is the rustic texture.

Place all ingredients into a large soup pot and simmer together for 30 minutes until the potatoes are tender and the flavors are blended.
