Sopa de Fideo - Mexican Noodle Soup

Russ Myers


This Sopa de Fideo recipe is a feast of flavors. Tomatoes, cumin, cilantro, avocados, lime – everything in one bowl! A bowl of comfort and warmth. Talking about lime, you can add juice of one lime to the pot in the very end or cut into wedges and serve it like that so everyone would be able to decide if they want it. If you are not like me and want some heat – just add 1 jalapeno to a pot. You can serve this Mexican noodle soup as a side dish or a starter before the main meal. Or you can add some shredded chicken or beef and make it as a standalone filling soup. Enjoy!
