Traditional Tex-Mex Sopa Fideo/Pasta
15 mins (prep 3, cooking 12)
11 ingredients
4-6 servings
This is a very old recipe around my home and in many other cities on the border. I used to eat this as a kid and I still enjoy it today. It is great as a side-dish or appetizer with Mexican food. It is also just a great snack. This is a vegetarian dish if you opt to use canola oil instead of lard. Also, note that you can use fideo (vermicelli) or any other type of small pasta such as small shells, alphabet, etc.
