Super Easy Tortilla Soup with Fire-Roasted Salsa

This easy to make soup is extra delicious since the El Sol salsa is made with so many good ingredients like fire-roasted tomatoes and corn, black beans, jalapeno, Hatch chiles, and onions.


2 tablespoons oil
1 cup chopped onions
½ cup chopped carrots
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
2 garlic cloves, chopped

3 cups chicken stock
1 cup leftover steak, chicken, or pork (optional), chopped into bite-size pieces ½ cup leftover cooked rice, pasta, barley or your favorite cooked grain
