    SkinnyMinnie's Note:

    Another little recipe I found in our local paper. This one has NO meat in it, but feel free to add pieces of chicken or other tender meat to this mix. Small pieces will cook in the time required for the noodles to become tender. Or, just serve with grilled or pan seared chicken.

      Made this per recipe, except used chicken stock instead of water. Makes a great side dish for a large mexican meal. Totally yummy!

      I used chicken broth instead of water and added about 1/4 lb. of browned ground beef (fat drained). Sprinkled the finished fideo with grated queso fresco.

      It was really easy and my 1 & 3 year-old kids loved it. My husband and I thought it was just ok--a little bland. It's a good base but you'll have to tweak it to suit your taste.
