“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.” - by Amy_S
