How to make sopa de fideo con papas
This recipe is super easy to make. If you’ve made sopita before you’ll see that this recipe is the same. You’re just going to be adding diced potatoes to it.
First peel and dice the potatoes into small cubes. Make sure to dice them small so that they’ll cook quickly.
Put the diced potatoes in a bowl and cover with water. This will prevent them from turning brown.
Next make the sauce. Put the tomato sauce, onion, garlic cloves, cumin, bouillon and two cups of water in a blender.
Blend until smooth. Then set the sauce aside.
Heat up the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Once the oil is hot add the noodles and cook for about 5-7 minutes stirring frequently until the noodles are a golden brown color.
This is what the toasted noodles should look like.
Then add the sauce. Stir and cook for a minute.
Next, drain the potatoes and add them to the skillet.
Add the rest of the water and stir.
Bring to a boil. Then reduce heat to medium low and cover.
Cook for about 10 minutes or until the potatoes are tender. Remove from heat.
