Smoky Lentil Soup

By

Some people like it hot, and if you're one of them, this main course soup recipe is made for you! Our fiber-ful lentil soup gets its smokiness from the ancho chile powder and smoked ham. Other flavorful highlights include a base of tomatoes, carrots, garlic, and scallions, which help infuse the broth with more richness and complexity.
