Sopa de fideo (Mexican noodle soup)
Sopa de fideo is an extremely easy to make soup packed with warm Mexican flavors. Serve hot with a splash of lime juice and a cheesecrisp and you have yourself and stress free meal. The fresh ingredients used for this soup really make all the difference, sure you can make it with canned tomatoes, garlic powder, etc. but the taste wont be the same. Trust me on this one.
1 medium onion (roughly chopped)
1 large tomato (roughly chopped)
1 large garlic clove
1 small bunch of cilantro
1/2 pack goya seasoning
1/3 teaspoon cumin powder
1 cup vermicelli pasta
1.5 liters chicken broth/stock
1 heaping tablespoon tomato paste
1 to 2 tablespoons oil
limes to serve
Place the tomato, onion, garlic, and cilantro into your food processor and pulse until fine. In a large pan over medium heat add the oil and saute the vermicelli until light golden brown. Add the prepared tomato sauce and cook for 2 minutes, add 1 heaping tablespoon of tomato paste, cumin powder, salt, pepper, and goya seasoning cook for an additional 2 minutes before adding the chicken broth. Once the chicken broth has been added cook the soup for approximately 20 minutes or until the pasta is cooked. Serve hot with lime juice.
