honey baked ham and greens soup

the ham bone i got from honey baked ham was too big for even my biggest stock pot! there was still tons of meat on it, though, which i carved off and used to make a fantastic soup.
first i caramelized one julienned onion in a little olive oil. then i added two cans of chicken stock (on sale all over town this week) and the same amount of water, one whole dried chili pepper, and the ham from the hambone. i let this bubble away till i couldn't stand it any longer, about an hour. then i added one bunch of chopped kale, stirred, and covered. after ten minutes-- in other words, before the kale was overdone-- i removed the pan from the burner.
