This soup is a must for every family! It is the soup my Nana gave to us as little kids.  It was mostly given to us when we did not feel well but also made when we just didn't have a lot of money for meat.  I remember growing up thinking, how in the world my Nana made the noodles to have two different colors?  Well now I know she browned the fideo just like she did the rice.  To this day I love this soup.  It is easy, fast and super yummy! I hope you feed it to your little ones and your family as a dinner time favorite!

This is the Fideo pasta. 

In a little bit of cooking oil you are going to brown your Fiedo just like we did with our rice.

What you will need:
I used half a bag of Fiedo
2 TBS cooking oil
¼ medium white onion
1/4 - 1/2 cup tomato sauce
 boiling water
4 tsp chicken bullion (note instead of using bullion you can use Swanson chicken broth)
  • The ratio is 1 to 4 or so.
  • Chicken Bullion advise...use the Knorr brand.
  • To spice this up you can add a little diced up yellow chile.
  • This can be a side dish or a main dish.

  1. In small pot sauté Fiedo with 2 TBS oil and diced onion.
  2. Cook until lightly brown (brown Fiedo on high, watching it carefully).
  3. While you are browning boil water.
  4. Once your Fiedo is browned add tomato sauce and stir until it is well blended with the Fiedo.
  5. Add water and chicken bullion.
  6. Stir while it comes to a full boil. Once boiling cover and bring heat to medium
  7. Let cook for 15 minutes.
  8. Top with Cilantro and serve. 
Here's to some good food!
