"This fideo recipe was given to me by my mother in-law. It goes great with any meat dish including carne asada. I use this recipe in place of rice as my side dish."

1 (8 ounce) package
1 (8 ounce) can
1 1/2 cups
I make this by browning the rice, then adding 4 Tbsp. tomato paste, 1 tsp. chicken boullion, garlic salt and parsley to taste and water. The chicken bullion takes out the strong tomato taste and adds good flavor. This is excellent served with pinto beans and pork chili, tamales, enchiladas, almost anything!
WAY to much chili powder. All you can taste is the chili powder. Cut back to 1 teaspoon or less. It shouldn't be that red in color.
EXCELLENT! I sauted 1/2 onion along with the fideo for about 7 minutes stirring constantly so that the fideo wouldn't burn. Added 2 garlic cloves for 30 seconds. Added 1 1/2 cups chicken broth, 1/2 can tomato sauce, cumin, and salt. After liquid became creamy I added the 2nd half of the sauce as directed.So I really didn't change it up that much. Just added personal tastes. I will definetly use this recipe again. Oh..when I ate it I had shredded chicken with white corn tortillas on the side. THIS ONE IS A KEEPER!
I didn't have the fideo noodles, but I did have a 1/2 pkg of angel hair pasta that I just broke up into 1/4th's. I really liked the flavor and texture of this dish. It's very similar to something I had at a restuarant many years ago. Great change from rice. I don't eat pasta very often, but I will remember this one.
I thought this recipe was wonderful!
This was my first time making fideo... I added a few extra spices as I went along. Very cheap and easy to make!
So yummy and spicy, I served this as a side dish with empanadas. I am going to make this again as a main dish with corn and pork pieces mixed into it.
I really love to make this when I have company over, and also for myself. I grew up eating this stuff, though I do add a cube of chicken bouillon for more flavor. It always surprises people who are expecting rice and beans with Mexican meal. It's great!
This dish is awesome! If you add diced tomatoes with chillies and then some Ranchero cheese on top it is without a doubt five stars! And so easy!
