Vermicelli Soup

"This soup is called "fideo" or "sopa seca" -- dry soup -- and is eaten all over Mexico. It is inexpensive and easy to make. This can be comforting when sick but, it is a GREAT side dish with any kind of meat, poultry, fish. To make it more soupy you can add vegetable broth to taste."

I did not care for this. Initially after all the liquid evaporated the pasta was still a little hard and tasted very bland, so to save it I added some chicken broth, parsley,pepper and adobo seasoning to liven it up. i will not make this again.


Fideo Durango...brown chopped onion and garlic with the fideo stiring constantly.Add water with 14+oz. can of diced tomatos..maybe a dash or two of comino (cumin)This a popular dish in my household.


After doctoring this recipe some, this soup came out okay. First off, I like the soupy kind that you get in Mex restaurants- so I added more liquid. The noodles were alot thicker than the restaurants and I had to add more garlic than the recipe called for. (I did cloves first like it said then added garlic salt) I also added beef flavored boullion cubes because of all the extra liquid I like. After all that it was good...
