Forgot to mention in my last review...also add chopped carrots and celery. It really adds to the flavor

Recipe is a good take on the classic. I find using chicken stock in place of the water adds much, much more flavor to the dish overall. Enjoy!!

Be careful to use 2 cups (16 oz volume) or more of split peas and not just a 16 oz (weight) package.
