Add the onions, carrots, celery, red pepper, and garlic. Cook for about 4-5 minutes.
Add all chicken stock. Add anough water so that ham (bone) is completely covered with liquid. Then cover & simmer for 2-3 hours or until the meat is falling off that bone.
Remove all the meat from the bone and remove the bone from the soup. Add in the package of dried split peas.
Cook uncovered until the peas are tender and the soup thickens.
Taste and check for salt & pepper.
