Mexican Fideo


By Toni Okamoto

Here is a quick and easy recipe for the “sopa” my grandma used to make for me. It’s a Mexican pasta dish spiced with cumin and it’s very, very delicious! It also happens to be extremely inexpensive, this recipe was only $1 to make!

Thanks to my Mom for donating this recipe.


  • 1 package Mexican fideo
  • 1 small can tomato sauce
  • 1 roma tomato, diced
  • 1/2 yellow onion, diced
  • 1 tbs ground cumin
  • 3 cups veggie broth (I used one bouillon cube dissolved in three cups water)


  • In a medium pan, saute the onions and fideo noodles over medium-low heat until the noodles become a very light brown (1-2 minutes). Make sure to monitor closely to avoid burning.
  • Add broth, cumin, tomatoes, and tomato sauce and stir well.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and let simmer for 10 minutes, or until noodles have softened and there’s a thicker consistency. Enjoy!
