I love Mexican food. The flavors are wonderful and everything always smells so good, I just can’t resist it! I’ve been to many Mexican restaurants and they seem to always give you a small cup of Sopa de Fideos (noodle soup) before the meal. So I scoured the internet and viewed tons of recipes discovering that the basic recipe is pretty much the same. Here’s my version and I loved it!
Sopa de Fideos
1 7 oz package of Fideo or angel hair pasta broken into small pieces
2 tablespoons olive oil
1- 14 oz can diced tomatoes
3- 14 oz cans chicken broth
1 small onion, chopped
1 large clove of garlic, coarsely chopped
1 tablespoon fresh chopped cilantro
freshly ground black pepper
Combine canned tomatoes, onion and garlic in a blender. Blend until smooth.
Warm olive oil in a medium skillet and add fideo noodles. Cook over medium low heat, stirrly regularly, until all pasta noodles are golden brown. Remove from heat.
Combine tomato mixture, chicken broth and the noodles in a medium saucepan. Season with pepper and salt. Bring to a boil then reduce to medium (gentle boil) until noodles are almost tender, about 7-8 minutes. Add chopped cilantro and cook 2 more minutes or until noodles are done.
