Growing up in a traditional Mexican home we had Fideo very often. It’s pretty much the Ramen Noodle of Mexico haha. It takes a few more steps but its so worth it! You can find the Fideo noodles in the Hispanic food aisle at the store, usually you can get a couple bags for just a buck. My kids love the ones in star and alphabet shapes. It all tastes the same just whatever you prefer. Definitely try this on its own or make some quesadillas on the side for a quick lunch!
1 (14.5 ounce) can of diced tomatoes
1 small onion, chopped
1 large clove garlic chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 (7 ounce) package fideo pasta, uncooked
6 cups of hot water
Knorr chicken bouillon cubes
black pepper to taste
salt to taste
Place the tomatoes, onion, and garlic into a blender with two cups of hot water, blend until smooth. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-low heat, and stir in the pasta. Fry the pasta stirring it often, until the pasta is golden brown. Pour in the tomato sauce you made an get a immediately. The pasta can easily burn so you want to do this fast. stir in chicken bouillons and the rest of the water. Bring to a boil, and reduce heat to medium low; simmer until the noodles are tender, 7 to 8 minutes. Season to taste with salt and black pepper.
