Easy "Peasy" Split Pea Soup

Lori Ann


This is my version of split pea soup. I discovered that the Sazon from Goya that is sold in packets is a wonderful flavor enhancer for this soup. If you can't get it just use seasoned salt which is what I used to use. This soup takes a while to thicken but worth the wait.
