Green Beans with Ham and Potatoes

One day, I asked my husband what he liked for dinner. He said he would eat anything that I 'll cook. I suggested that we will have soup and vegetables then he agreed. He told me that his mother used to cook green beans with potatoes and ham in soup. I asked him what it was called but he can't recall. It is just like similar to making a stew and you can cook it using a crock pot. So I prepared it for that night. I made a soup and a side dish. My soup has green Beans, ham and potatoes. It was just like what my husband described to me. We ate it with rice.

1 onion, sliced
1 tomato, diced
1 green or red pepper, julienne
1/2 lb green beans, french cut in 1-inch length
2 pcs potatoes, cubed and soaked in water
salt and pepper
3 cups water
Boil water with potatoes and green beans. Cover and simmer; When the vegetables are tender, add the meat and the rest of the ingredients. Simmer for a few minutes. Serve hot with rice.
