Lima Bean Soup

This was something I threw together to use up some leftovers in the fridge. I think I did a pretty good job of making a very tasty soup out of those leftovers. I was worried that we would not like it but in the end there were no leftovers. I am hoping for some more leftover lima beans so we can make this soup again. It was quick and easy to make as from start to finish I'd say it took me about 30 minutes.

Please remember I am trying to do this off the top of my head. You may want to adjust for your personal preferences.

Heat about one tablespoon olive oil in a dutch oven. Once the oil is heated add
1 medium onion, minced
Cook until onion is tender but not browning and add
1 cup ham cut into bite size pieces
Cook until the ham starts to smell fragrant and then add
3 garlic cloves, minced
after 30 seconds add
4 cups water
1 teaspoon chicken bouillon
1 teaspoon beef bouillon
5 shakes of hot sauce
1/4 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1 1/2 cups cooked lima beans
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
Bring to a boil and then simmer 15-20 minutes.
