“This fideo is simple, quick and delicious. It's great as a light meal or side dish. There are many ways to prepare fideo but for me, this is the quickest. You can add some tomato sauce and a dash of cumin when you add the chicken stock for extra flavor. Add less water if you want drier pasta.”

This is a great recipe when on a tight budget! Easy & good. If I have leftover chicken, I shred it & add right before the noodles are done. I also use a chicken bouillon cube and add about 1/2 can tomatoe sauce. My kids love this, esp when I add the chicken.

This was very good. I used 1-8oz can of tomato sauce because i didnt have cubes and i added the cumin like the submitter suggested. I also added a pinch of oregano. Served with sour cream, cojita cheese, lime and tortillas.

Very basic recipe and a good one. I added 1/2 tsp cumin, garlic, 1/2 cup frozen peas and 1/2 chopped tomatoes.
