Add all ingredients to your slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW for 8-10 hours or until the peas are tender.
Serve & enjoy!
If soup thickens past your liking, you can thin it with more water or additional chicken broth.This soup freezes very well. Once cooled, portion into freezer containers and freeze. I like to reheat straight from frozen in my mini crockpot or in a saucepan on the stove. Recipe can be made with or without ham.
