"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."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

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.
UPDATE: Chicken-y flavor, not too tomatoey and not spicy at all. Our vermicilli fideo only comes in 5 oz packages here so I used a 26 oz box of stock and only 1 and about 2/3 the other tomato bullion cube and then simmered it until the liquid was reduced. I added a generous pinch of both ground cumin and oregano. Awesome meal!
Original: Thanks Amy! I found my new favorite fideo recipe. This was great. Quick and easy to make.
I used chicken boullion cubes instead of tomato and mexican tomato sauce and water for the broth. I did add some comino and topped this with sour cream and some mexican cheese blend. I snuck in a pinch of oregano too as suggested by another reviewer, thanks SB for the tip! This turned out great and I will be making this one again (and again).
Yum! When the noodles were about browned, I tossed in 2 cloves of garlic (minced), and 1/2 tsp of cumin to cook for a minute along with the tomato broth powder. I added a few shakes of cayenne, black pepper, and a can of diced tomatoes during along with the chicken broth. Tasty! Thanks for the recipe!
This is a basic Fideo recipe. Always turns out perfect.
This recipe is the closest to authentic as I have seen. Most people use water and tomato sauce here in Texas. The tomato boullion cubes are good too. Salt and pepper are a must with the tomato sauce though.
This tastes so good, I thought I was back at mom's, !
